Access to Central London just got easier…

50% off London City Landing Fees in June

At Blink we realise time is money.  Unfortunately up to now, access to London City Airport and the doorstep of London’s Business District has attracted quite a steep price premium.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with London City Airport Jet Centre to offer Blink passengers a 50% discount on landing and handling fees for any flight taking place in June.

This results in a saving of over £1,000 at peak times, and £600 at off-peak times compared to our normal London City fares.

So what are you waiting for? Book your flight into London City and get straight to business.

Notes:

  • This offer amounts to 50% off Landing and Handling fees, a saving of £1,000 over a peak movement, and £600 on an off-peak movement
  • This offer is only valid for flights taking place from 1st June to 30th June 2013 inclusive
  • 50% discount applies to only the landing & handling fees, and not to the entire flight cost
  • Offer is subject to availability of aircraft and crew at the time of booking
Please contact Blink Flight Services to book or learn more about this special offer.

Blink straight into St Tropez & Lugano

St Tropez, nestled in the beautiful Cote d’Azur has long been the summer home to the jet set, with the rich and famous flocking here for sun, sand and sailing.

For those relying on commercial flights or travelling on larger Private Jets, nearby Nice, Cannes and Toulon Hyeres have been the closest airports to St Tropez and long car journeys have had to be taken to get to the jewel of the Cote d’Azur.

For VLJs such as Blink’s fleet of Cessna Citation Mustang however there is another option, St Tropez La Mole (LFTZ/LTT).

Blink is proud to announce that we are now ready to launch operations into St Tropez La Mole.  Whilst the airfield is quite restrictive with wind and temperature, our crew have completed rigorous training with the French DGAC, and are now qualified to operate into La Mole.

Helicopter Insurance now available!

There will be times when wind or temperature conditions prevent us being able to land safely in St Tropez La Mole.  During these times our aircraft will have to diver to Cannes Mandelieu (LFMD/CEQ) airport, and the journey will have to be continured by road from there.

We’ve teamed up with a local helicopter company to offer the Blink Helicopter Insurance.  For €400 Euros per flight, you can cover the possibility of diversion and have a Helicopter whisk you from Cannes to Helistation de Grimaud in St Tropez right away.

Blink renews Lugano crew training for Summer 2013

In addition to St Tropez La Mole, we have also renewed the training of our captains into Lugano (LSZA/LUG), Switzerland.

We first operated to Lugano back in 2010.  You can read our blog post and see photos of our trip on our news feed.

Lugano is quickly becoming the destination of choice for summer vacationing, and so in recognition of this we have renewed our pilot specialist training for this airfield to better serve Blink passengers in summer 2013.

Summer in the Skies

This summer has been the busiest yet for Blink.  We’ve flown to all the corners of Europe, and set up summer bases in the the south of France, Sardinia, and the Balaerics to better serve your flight requests.  Our crew have been snapping away everywhere they go, which allows us to share with you some of the views you can enjoy at 41,000 feet onboard Blink.

Postcard – Tunis, Tunisia

Blink’s first flight to Tunisia – Sat 12 June 2010

 

Captain Dave Stoddart and First Officer Lee Barringer piloted Blink’s first flight to Tunisia.  They sent this postcard upon arrival in Ibiza.

We departed Geneva late morning with a planned flight time just under 2 hours and good weather forecast for the whole journey. Our route took us over the Alps and the Cote d’Azur, passing down the west coast of Corsica then down the length of Sardinia, overflying Cagliari and finally on towards the coastline of Tunisia.

It was a fairly typical hazy north African day but we had excellent views of some large resort hotels to the north of Tunis as we made our descent towards the airport about 30 miles further south. The runway in use for landing required us to fly over the top of the airport and then turn back and land towards the north. Air traffic control was as good as anywhere in Europe and the airport itself is well equipped with two long runways. Although neither of us had been to Tunis before, all the procedures for our approach and landing were as one would expect of modern airport. After landing, we were guided around to the general aviation terminal and promptly met by our handling agents, who then supplied us with fuel for the following day’s flight.

Although we only had a brief night in Tunis, the impression is of a relaxed and easygoing culture with a hint of its colonial French past. Most people we engaged with spoke good English and were very friendly. Tunisia in general seems fairly westernised and has a large established tourist industry spread over several resort areas, each of which is served by a modern airport. These include the island of Djerba in the south, Sfax and Monastir on the central east coast and brand new airport at Sousse about 200 km south of Tunis.

We departed the following morning for Ibiza, which took us west along the north coast of Algeria for about an hour before turning towards the Balearics.

Again, we had an enjoyable flight and the views from the Mustang at 40000 feet were superb.

Fly direct with Blink

Our seasonal bases open up even more destinations that we have yet to fly to.  Whether you want to explore North Africa (Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco) or island hop between Corfu, Mykonos, and Cyprus, Blink can fly you there direct.  Search all our airports by visiting www.flyblink.com/airports.

Blink summer bases – an expanded network

A pan-European network of bases from London to Sardinia

We’re going to make the most of the sunshine by opening new bases for the summer season.

From June until October, Blink aircraft and crew will be regularly based across 7 bases

Customers will be able to fly at the shortest notice directly from these locations. And with our planes there, ready and waiting, our prices will get even better value, as we’ll not have to position any resources from our nearest permanent base in Geneva.

What’s more, our seasonal bases will bring many new non-stop Blink destinations into our network, adding to the 600 we already cover across Western and Northern Europe. Fly non-stop, for example, from Nice to Athens, Thessaloniki or Bucharest, or from Ibiza non-stop to Casablanca and Marrakesh.

Look out for our monthly fare promotions to qualify for the best deals.  If we’ve got a plane on the ground, we should be ready to go within 2 hours of your call.

A long hot summer

Discover your passions

We’re fingers crossed that England gets some sunshine this summer – not least so that we get blue skies at Blackbushe, our aircraft operating headquarters and primary UK base, just down the M3 from London.  But even if the UK gets another wash-out, you can be sure of finding hot weather somewhere in Europe – even last week it was 30 degrees plus in the shade in Greece, Portugal and Spain. And Blink plans to get you there and to many other hot spots the next few months, with a seasonal programme of great fares to more than 200 summer airports.

Blink’s summer bases

Our fleet of 7 mustangs is already busy at work helping customers get the summer breaks to which they’ve been looking forward since last September. Whether it’s a weekend city break, a day at the seaside, a glamorous wedding or the first of long lazy days at the villa, Blink is delighted to get your summer started.

Escape with Blink

Every month, we’ll be advertising special promotional fares, some to everybody’s favourite hot spots, others to more exotic destinations off the beaten path. From our bases in London and Geneva, Blink and we’ll get you anywhere from Malaga to Malta, Dubrovnik to Stockholm.
