‘Aurigny appreciates that many people wish to take their dogs on holiday to the UK or Jersey,’ said a spokesman.

‘In addition many islanders buy dogs and cats off-island, which, until now may have meant a lengthy journey on the boat.’

‘The services to Southampton and Jersey are amongst Aurigny’s shortest flights so pets should experience a low stress brief journey,’ the spokesman said.

‘If you wish to book your cat or dog on one of the flights this can be done online for flights after 29 March 2020.’
