Guernsey's government-owned airline returns to its summer schedule

Aurigny will fly its full summer schedule from Friday 5 July after pausing it for five weeks due to a lack of aircraft availability.

The airline will resume direct flights to East Midlands, Exeter and Liverpool, which it paused in June, because it did not have the aircraft to fly them.

Aurigny say a global shortage of aircraft spares and aircraft to lease meant it had to scale back its ambitious summer route map after many cancellations and delays, exacerbated by a leased aircraft overshooting the runway on landing. 

Aurigny Chief Commercial Officer Sudeep Ghai says the schedule's return will be welcome news for passengers:  

“We are pleased that our route network is returning to normal service and thank our customers for their patience and understanding over the last few months.  

“This is a positive step towards providing the reliable service that our customers expect and deserve.” 

Aurigny will continue to lease in two aircraft and their crew until a fourth, leased ATR joins the fleet in July.

A fifth is planned to arrive in September which will bring the airline to full capacity.
