Priority boarding for Hovertravel during the festival weekend
Hovertravel is ready to help commuters and regular customers during the forthcoming Isle of Wight Festival weekend with priority boarding and dedicated queuing lanes within the terminals.
Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, explains: “We appreciate that many people rely on us to fly across the Solent for work and hospital appointments, or going on holiday to cruise ports and airports and our highly successful priority boarding system will be operating as normal during the busy Festival period. This avoids any unnecessary delays for our commuters and local residents as we fast-track these passengers to the priority boarding area at the front of the queue and on to the next available departure.At the same time, we are taking advantage of our fast crossing times and flexible operation to add extra crossings to accommodate the increased demand from festival-goers.”
Hovertravel is operating a booked craft service for all customers including visitors to the festival and this process has proven to be very successful in previous years. Priority boarding means that festival queues are kept to a minimum, regular customers get to their booked seats first and ensures the quickest turn round for the craft.
