Revised Summer Timetable 2018

HoverTraveller Update - 21st September 2018

Dear Hovertravel Customer,

We will be implementing a revised timetable from 24th September to Monday 12th November 2018 and the service will be operated by Island Flyer with the following cancellations:

  • Monday to Friday Ex Ryde: 0630, 0700, 0730, 0800, 1600, 1630, 1700, 1730
  • Monday to Friday Ex Southsea: 0645, 0715, 0745, 0815, 1615, 1645, 1715, 1745

All other services remain unchanged with services departing Ryde at 15/45 mins past the hour and from Southsea 30/00 mins past the hour. The 1845 service ex Ryde will be a freight service only Monday – Friday.

A revised timetable will be in operation whilst Solent Flyer leaves Ryde for Griffon Hoverwork at Woolston, where it will undergo remedial work following an issue with the ballast transfer system. This work is estimated to take until early November and Hovertravel will provide an update on progress on Thursday 25th October.

If you have booked a journey on any of the cancelled services we would ask you to please book on an
alternative operating service. If you are unable to change your booking we will offer you a refund with an
apology voucher or the option to receive a pre-paid ticket to travel with Wightlink.

All customers with Season Cards or Travel Cards may change individual pre-booked services online, as
announced in yesterday’s Hovertraveller. If you have a regular booking on a now cancelled service please
speak to a member of our staff or email us at info@hovertravel.com and we will arrange for your bookings
to be changed to a new time.

Our Duty Managers and staff will be on hand at both Southsea and Ryde terminals to assist passengers
with transferring their bookings and answering enquiries.

All the above information is available on the Hovertravel website

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and will endeavour to expedite the works as soon as

I would like to thank you for your support and patience and I will be sure to provide updates on the works

Julie Horrocks, Head of Operations.
