Island Flyer

Further to our recent issue of Hover News, we would like to update you on Island Flyer.

The modifications, recently completed to Solent Flyer, are starting on Island Flyer which departed earlier today for Griffon Hoverwork in Southampton where the work will be completed.

It is anticipated that the work will take a shorter time than Solent Flyer, and we will update you in due course. The current timetable remains unchanged.

HoverBus new timetable

Further to feedback and our review last year, our new HoverBus timetable has been approved by Portsmouth City Council and Stagecoach.

These changes will be implemented on Monday 4th February. From this date the Hoverbus is timetabled to depart one minute after the scheduled arrival of the hovercraft at 26 and 56 minutes past the hour, avoiding the waiting time.

Due to the earlier schedule, the bus is due to arrive back in Southsea at 20 and 50 minutes past the hour. This will ensure greater connectivity by delivering our HoverBus passengers to the check-in before our advised 5-minute arrival prior to craft departure and will assist the company improve its overall On Time Performance.

The new HoverBus timetable is available here now on our website and we will be updating our app and the timetables at the bus stops this week.
