Waves gets route licences to fly to Jersey and Alderney
WAVES will again be able to sell single seats to Jersey and Alderney after its air transport licence application was granted.
It stopped selling single tickets early in January having originally launched on the belief it was exempt from licensing as an on-demand air taxi.
Since then it has been offering a charter service, including to Europe, while waiting for a decision on the licences.
It can now operate selling both individual seats and whole aircraft charters.
'I’d firstly like to thank the TLA for this positive decision and for their efforts working tirelessly through the very thorough process, granting us the approval to fly to and from Guernsey to both Jersey and Alderney,' said Waves CEO Nick Magliocchetti.
'The fact that they have granted us the licences is proof that our business is a perfect fit for the inter island air travel market. We have always maintained that we are here to fill a gap in that market and not compete with existing carriers. We offer a niche service that is designed to attract customers who may have chosen not to fly because of inconvenient schedules or pricing structures.
Waves will continue to develop their customised tech platforms for eventual licensing on the global market.
Further announcements on the return to individual seat sales will be made in due course.
