The new G-ETAC aircraft joins Aurigny’s other New Generation Dornier, G-OAUR, which arrived in 2015.
Between them they will now provide the majority of services to Alderney, Southampton and Dinard.
During the delay period, RUAG provided Aurigny with a Classic Dornier to ensure inter-island services were adequately covered.
This has now been returned.
Aurigny CEO Mark Darby said: ‘We are delighted to take delivery of G-ETAC. The aircraft is equipped with the latest New Generation systems and has comfortable seats to provide the very best customer experience.’
He added: ‘Alongside our other New Generation aircraft [G-OAUR], it will provide the backbone to the fleet and operate a majority of our inter-island services.
‘This was an important investment in our Alderney operations and ensures we have a fleet that can serve us well for years to come.’
The States of Alderney CEO Andrew Muter said: ‘I am delighted with the news that the new Dornier will shortly be serving Alderney.
‘The availability of reliable, modern aircraft with up-to-date technology is a real plus for the island and for its visitors.
‘I very much welcome this investment by Aurigny and look forward to flying in the new plane.’
