Seems like there is now going to be a lot of competition on the island routes. Waves, air Alderney and Clear Harbour all looking to establish themselves. Does this spell the end of the additional new Dornier? No news about its arrival.

GOMAF returned to Oberpfaffenhofen a few weeks ago. Does anyone know whether / when it will be returning?

Last year Aurigny trumpeted it's tie up with the easyJet's 'Worldwide Connections' enabling pax to check in at GCI and collect bags at their final destination,here we are at the end of May
& still nothing is available to book. Has anyone an update on this or has it died a quiet death?

It claims to be coming soon on the EasyJet web site.

The Embraer seems to have suffered quite a few tech issues/delays in recent weeks & I see it is once again tech & stuck at LGW this morning,
UPDATED. Long delays & cancelled flights have followed, there is lack of back up aircraft as one ATR is on a day stop in Bordeaux.
Does it really take this long to get a spare part (brake parts from Sussex apparently) roaded up & fitted?

Police called to GCI airport to deal with unruly passengers.


Aurigny - The Islanders airline!!

Can you provide the source of information for Police being "called to GCI airport to deal with unruly passengers." News sources tell of unrest, complaints, and a distinct lack of information at LGW but not at GCI.

G-HUET / GR630

G-HUET seems to have aborted today's flight to Norwich and is returning to Guernsey. I wonder why?

I had this information from a member of GR ground staff & took it to be true.
The local media do not get informed of every call out the police get & I would imagine that GR wouldn't want that sort of publicity either hence they wouldn't mention it in a media release.

There is a Dornier 228NG parked outside the hangar at GCI, reg D-CNEU. Could this be Aurigny's second NG?

My initial thought was that it was. However, D-CNEU is by no means a new aircraft, having seen service with the German Navy as well as being a flying test bed for RUAG. I think we'll have to wait a little longer for GR's next NG.

Interestingly though it has just flown to ACI with an Aurigny flight number (AUR40T).

.... and back again.

Aircraft routed from Fairford this morning, where it was in the RIAT static display (next to another Do-228 from the Dutch Coastguard) over the weekend.

Its up ! Guernsey is now online on the EJ site ( OK, worldwide site ). You can fly from Guernsey to Gatwick for 3 quid more than the Aurigny flight. Dinard is also shown but all the date I searched were fully booked.

Mind you, Isle of Man and Jersey are online but do not show all possible connections.

I see from jethros.org.uk that the new Dornier NG will be registered as G-ETAC, although that registration doesn't yet appear on G-INFO. I guess that this means that the new a/c is due shortly, albeit long delayed from its original delivery date. Does anyone have any information as to when the new a/c will be arriving? It would also be interesting to know of the plans for the old Dorniers (G-LGIS and G-SAYE. Having two different generations with different cockpits must be a drain on Aurigny's resources. Maybe they will order a third NG.

That will probably depend upon finance. With 3 new ATR72s suggested there are likely to be some constraints. . ACI routes are notoriously loss-making so a third NG is probably unlikely. As to the ancient Do228s, G-SAYE has not flown for over a month and may be finished. The suggestion still persists that a composite airframe will be produced with SAYE donating its wings to LGIS. We await confirmation.
