Sparkle 320

GNSEY tucked up snugly in the Anglo Normandy hangar after her exertions in East Anglia. Home sweet home.

Smile ClearVision certified

GEP states today that the clearVision landing system has now been certified and can be used once pilots trained. This requires 150 hours flying time and time in simulators. This is thought to require 3 to 4 months.

A long way indeed! Maintenance was undertaken at LPA last winter, but two ATRs have recently been disposed of (G-COBO in November and G-VZON in January) and went from GCI to LPA for checks before moving on elsewhere.

Presumably related to the departure of G-HUET? FR24 suggests it's gone to Las Palmas within the last few days.

G-HUET was going anyway. Inter-island loads have simply not been good enough with a Do228 sometimes being used. It's a shame, but inevitable. It will be interesting to see if GCI-SOU continues as loads there have not been brilliant.

GCI-SOU is a strange one as the total passenger numbers on the route are through the roof, but as you say Aurigny's loads that I've seen haven't been brilliant, especially over the winter. Blue Islands though seem to be flying fuller than ever. It's almost like demand has been stimulated by having two carriers on the route but only one of them is actually benefitting. Maybe it's the fact that everyone appears to associate SOU with Flybe and books through them automatically? That wouldn't explain the big jump in numbers since Aurigny came onto the route though...

.....timings (for a day return to the island) on the Aurigny service are not great, which may not be helping.

Good news, if they are. However, I would have thought that it would pay them better to take on the Jersey link, too. Otherwise, these two new routes might not be as productive for them as they might think.

Think you have your airlines mixed-up, the below is on the Blue Islands site this morning:

"BIRMINGHAM & EXETER - UPDATE

Further announcements relating to commencement of a new Blue Islands scheduled service to Birmingham and Exeter from both Guernsey and Jersey will be announced over the coming days. In the meantime, customers are assured of continued service to both of these destinations"

BI flew these routes yesterday as additional "rescue" flights initially.

In that case, seems a bit crazy that they are both going after what is probably (esp. during the winter) a pretty small market.

On-island politics in play perhaps?

you’d think so right.

interesting to see how all this works out. Blue islands could benefit from the jersey link up for sure vs aurigny just having Guernsey’s market to play with.

As much as competition is excellent for tourism, locals, businesses, in a small market it kills the airlines doing it.
