11.09.2013  flybe says goodbye: Aurigny Airlines Takes Over…

The 255 km between London Gatwick airport and the Channel Island of Guernsey have been operated by flybe up until now. But the provider for this route is changing as of March, 2014: The airline will no longer fly this route and has sold the landing rights for 10 million pounds to EasyJet, which is, in fact, a competitor. The route will also be served next spring by Aurigny Airlines, which has invested in a new aircraft for the new undertaking. Until now, flybe has served the London – Guernsey route with five flights daily. However, according to the company, the associated costs, airport taxes in particular, are too high. Therefore, Aurigny Airlines will now take over: The state-owned company currently flies from Guernsey to London and back six times a day anyway. This programme will now be expanded, and Aurigny is increasing its fleet for this purpose. Where this route has previously been flown with an ATR 72, Aurigny has now ordered an Embraer 195. The company explained that it is a major investment which will carry the presumed increase in numbers. The new aircraft has 122 seats, which is 50 more than the ATR has. However, delivery of the aircraft will not come in time for the route takeover. The company expects to first put the aircraft into use in June. More
