The BBC (I know, I know...) writes

"Aurigny expects to take delivery of a 122-seat Embraer 195 jet in the middle of 2014.

It will join the airline's ATRs, which operate six flights a day to Gatwick, with a capacity of about 70 passengers.

Aurigny has not revealed how much it is paying for the new aircraft, but previously said a new jet would likely cost between 27m and 32m.

The States agreed to guarantee the purchase of the jet at its July meeting and the airline has signed an initial agreement with the Brazilian manufacturer."

Did Flybe lease its 195s from Embraer? Also I thought there were some restrictions on the 195 at GCI?

Edit BBC Guernsey Aurigny interim MD confirms purchase, not lease - agreement signed Friday - enters service mid-June with wet-lease from Flybe March pull out...also will retrain local ATR pilots....

No extra slots - and will retain old ATR as back-up in the event of it going tec.
