Reorganisation of its London-bound operations as one of a number of changes “to improve efficiency and financial performance” has been announced by Guernsey flag carrier Aurigny Airlines.
The changes include absorbing spare capacity on Gatwick and Stansted flights by pulling out of London City from 27 October. Aurigny said: “Resultant increased efficiency on the Gatwick route should enable us to maintain/improve the competitive nature of our fares.”
The airline said it also meant it would be able to refocus its efforts on maintaining and improving its other existing routes in its role as an economic enabler, including Gatwick, which was Guernsey’s main gateway to the UK.
“The Gatwick route is a key lifeline service for the island and the quality of Aurigny’s service at Gatwick is crucial to both the image and prosperity of Guernsey,” an airline statement added.
It said with this in mind, Aurigny in December would launch its own ground operations at Gatwick, with Aurigny staff. The airline already handles its own operations in Guernsey, Alderney and Southampton.
CEO Mark Darby said: “This is an exciting opportunity for us to improve the service we provide customers at Gatwick. It will help us to cut disruption, improve our customer service and enhance the overall experience we offer on the busiest route to the island.”
