Alderney passengers can use the bus from airport during student flights

PEOPLE flying in from Alderney and wanting to use the bus are allowed to do so, but have been told to have their boarding pass ready for the driver to check.

The closest stop is at the airport entrance – a short walk from the one opposite the terminal which is closed for safety while student flights are operating.

Traffic has decided to stop services going into the airport this week to ‘discourage anyone from being tempted to use public buses’.

People flying directly from Alderney do not need to self-isolate.

‘Alderney residents wishing to use the bus service can continue to do so,’ the States of Alderney said.

‘For buses heading into St Peter Port, there is a stop at the entrance to the airport and another with a shelter 200 metres down the road, by Forest Stores.

‘It is appreciated that this is slightly less convenient, but it is in everyone’s best interests.’

The States added that the boarding pass would show that travel has been within the Bailiwick.
