Aurigny and Treasury strike deal over Gatwick fares
AURIGNY and Treasury have struck a deal over Gatwick fares. But the department would not outline 'like for like' comparisons for fare tariffs from previous years.
Treasury and Resources yesterday confirmed more details of the objectives it has agreed with Aurigny, specifically around fares on the Gatwick route.
In 2012, when it was competing with Flybe, the airline's average fare on the route was £63.
While the department said there was no overall fare set for this year, Aurigny had committed to offering 60% of its available fares to Gatwick at between £26 and £65 or less, excluding UK air passenger duty of £13. The airline would then be free to sell the remaining fares at levels it chooses.
'Aurigny has forecast an average fare level for the Gatwick route that is broadly made up of the average fare in 2012, inflated to take into account cost increases over that time,' a spokesperson for Treasury said.
