Hovertravel operates three nights of midnight flights

(30 August 2022) For the recent bank holiday weekend Hovertravel operated flights at or after midnight on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Customers returning from the Victorious festival were all offered a free bottle of water and a selection of retro-themed sweets.

Neil Chapman, managing director of Hovertravel explained: “We are long-time supporters of the Victorious Festival and the late flights we operate over the bank holiday weekend are relied upon by many island residents looking to enjoy all the festival and still return home the fastest way.

This year we added more value for our customers and provided free water and sweets which were very warmly welcomed. The friendly and fun festival atmosphere carried on through our terminals and the feedback we received both on the night and since is very much appreciated.

As with any additional flights outside our timetable, we can only support these events thanks to the dedication of operations staff in both terminals, plus the engineers, crew and pilots who gave up their bank holiday evenings to volunteer for overtime.”

Hovertravel is also offering late flights next Saturday, 3rd September, so customers can enjoy the entirety of the Ryde Illuminated Carnival. The extra night flights leave Ryde at 21:45 and 22:45.
