(4 November 2022) Hovertravel has announced that following a successful trial of 07:45 departures from Ryde on Saturdays since September, this earlier flight has been added permanently to its timetable.
Loretta Lale, head of commercial at Hovertravel, adds: “Having reviewed the demand for this flight, we are delighted to announce that this departure is now part of our normal timetable. As well as customers from the groups we expected such as weekend commuters and school children with Saturday activities, we have also seen customers looking to start their day trip on either side of the Solent earlier.
Hovertravel continues to investigate opportunities to enhance its service, including trialling additional flights outside the current timetable. When the demand is proven, such has been with our popular Portsmouth Football Club late night flights and these early Saturday mornings, we will not hesitate to provide the additional flights.”
