(12 July 2022) As in previous years, Hovertravel is again adding extra flights to its timetable to support Isle of Wight residents who wish to watch the late home games.
Pat Sowerbutts, commercial manager at Hovertravel, explains: “We are always looking to develop our services and thanks to an ongoing partnership with the Isle of Wight Pompey Supporters Club and Portsmouth Football Club, as well as volunteers from our teams, we can operate these very popular additional flights.”
For Portsmouth Football Club match ticket or season pass holders, Hovertravel will operate a late 22:15 services from Southsea, after the home game and include an exclusive charter coach at 22:00 to transfer supporters from Fratton Park to Southsea.
These additional flights will be available on the following dates:
Tuesday 16th August vs Cambridge United
Tuesday 25th October vs Oxford United-Team
Thursday 29th December vs Ipswich Town-Team
Tuesday 14th February (2023) vs Burton Albion-Team
The Chairman of Isle of Wight Pompey Supporters explained: “ Without this service it would be almost impossible for supporters to attend these matches without great difficulty so on behalf of our members I’d like to re-iterate our gratitude to Hovertravel for providing such an excellent service for evening league games.
Consequently we welcome their plans for the forthcoming 2022/23 season and give management and staff at Hovertravel our full support and thanks for providing such a vital service at a competitive price. I can assure everyone that the demand will continue because of the enormous level of support that Pompey has here on the Island and the excellent relationship that we enjoy with Hovertravel.”
