Current Aurigny schedule to remain until at least 21 September
AURIGNY will not extend their services until at least 21 September.
The airline has decided to extend the current Guernsey-to-Southampton only schedule until Friday 18 September, with a return to the planned schedule commencing no sooner than 21 September.
This date will continue to be reviewed.
The reason for the change is that while the quarantine in Guernsey and Alderney remains at 14 days, the demand for travel remains low and Aurigny has seen no evidence of increased bookings past 16 August, the date when quarantine will change to seven days on receipt of a negative test.
'We have made these changes to enable our customers to make travel arrangements in advance and either change or amend any existing bookings made on routes not operating from 1 September until 21 September,' a spokesperson said.
All customers with bookings during this time will be contacted with options to change or cancel flights.
Aurigny continues to operate scheduled services between Guernsey and the Isle of Man, as well as Guernsey and Alderney and have been delighted with the level of interest in both the Isle of Man airbridge and Alderney as destinations during the summer.
The Isle of Man airbridge currently ends on 13 of September and Aurigny is refining its schedule from 21 September onwards in anticipation of possible relaxed entry requirements to Guernsey.
It is also fully aware that these entry requirements may not have changed at that stage.
'As ever, Aurigny will update customers as soon as it can and looks forward to operating a more diverse schedule when it is practical to do so within the confines of any travel restrictions,' the spokesperson said.
