Red noses on hovercraft for Comic Relief


Hovertravel, the world’s only year-round scheduled passenger hovercraft service, is wearing a red nose on each of its two hovercraft to raise awareness and encourage donations for Comic Relief 2022.

Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, explains: “Our hovercraft are some of the most photographed commercial vessels in the world, and we wanted to use their popularity to raise the awareness of Comic Relief and hopefully encourage people to give what they can.

“Solent Flyer has the red nose called Dash proudly displayed on the front between the two bow doors and Island Flyer is wearing the red nose called Chip is the same place.”

Hovertravel will be collecting donations in their terminals, and obviously, anyone can give online at
