The service, mothballed since lockdown one in March 2020, will be twice week, Monday and Friday, to start with.

More routes will be relaunched from the end of May.

But even if borders reopen without restrictions on 1 July, Aurigny will be waiting a few weeks before running a full schedule.

The airline said yesterday that regular flights to other destinations will not come online until 16 July.

The States-owned airline has a limited schedule until mid-July – just one or two flights a day to Gatwick and a couple of flights a week to Manchester.

Some islanders have taken to social media to complain about lack of options in early July.

An Aurigny spokeswoman said that enhanced schedules had been timed to coincide with the start of the school holidays.

Aurigny plans to restart regular services to East Midlands, Bristol and Leeds/Bradford on 16 July, as well as the code share routes of Birmingham and Exeter with Blue Islands.
