EXTRA Hovertravel services have been put on to help revellers get to the Isle of Wight for Bestival.

An extra 26 services have been scheduled to run today.

Marketing manager Loretta Lale said: ‘We have already added an extra 37 per cent capacity, and bookings are still being made, so it is looking like being a bumper Bestival for Hovertravel.

‘The promise of good weather over the next couple of days and the range of artists performing have combined to make this one of the most popular festivals of 2013.’

Hovertravel will also have its priority boarding system, which fast-tracks commuters, regular island customers, and NHS patients travelling to use the craft.
