The States of Guernsey-owned airline has promised to increase both capacity and frequency on the route next summer and explore the possibility of re-establishing the Island’s air link with Paris.
The company’s managing director, Malcolm Hart, spoke to politicians and business leaders in Jersey yesterday to outline Aurigny’s plans for the future and to stress that it saw itself primarily as a Channel Islands airline, despite its Sarnian ownership.
We were bought by the States of Guernsey as an insurance policy after BA pulled off the Guernsey – Gatwick route because the island felt it needed guaranteed access to London,’ said Mr Hart.
‘That protected the link, but Aurigny should be seen as an insurance policy for Jersey, too.
Although we are owned by just one of the bailiwicks, we are committed to Jersey just as much as Guernsey and we are looking to develop our services here.
