The rebranded airline will take off on Monday 22 September when it begins flying between Jersey and Guernsey.

It will fly up to eight times each day between the two islands with a guaranteed return fare of £49, as long as the seat is booked more than two weeks before flying.

Within a fortnight, the price of a ticket increases to £69.

This is a hugely exciting time for us as a new inter-island airline,’ said Rockhopper chairman Noel Hayes.

‘We will deliver competitive fares and top quality customer service on inter-island air travel.

We are going to break Aurigny’s monopoly and give people a much better deal.

We have changed names to emphasise our commitment to the Channel Islands.

We see our future as flying between the rocks rather than using them as stepping stones to bigger things, as Flybe has done.

We want to develop a Channel Islands focused network with links to the surrounding coasts such as Bournemouth and the Cotentin peninsula but our ambitions do not go beyond that – we are not a Virgin Atlantic.

Rockhopper will continue to fly between the islands and Bournemouth and it also intends to expand its service between Jersey and Alderney.

The number of passengers that travelled with Le Cocqs in the first half of this year is more than double those of the whole of last year.

assengers on the new airline will have access to a lounge at Jersey Airport, where they’ll be served with complimentary coffee and a newspaper before boarding their flight.

The rebranding is accompanied by the launch of a new website, www.
