The INV - GCI and GCI - INV sectors were also sold for £49 each way including baggage which I think quite a few people took advantage of to come down to Guernsey for the weekend, either for a weekend break (weather was cold but not too bad) or to see family.

Almost three months have passed and am still waiting for exciting news on this story... I don't consider Eastern Airways, Blue Islands and Loganair to be major global airlines and none of the three excite me ! :-)

MAN-LPL Diversion 20/02/2022

High wind gusts @ MAN caused g/a, a/c then squawked 7700 and diverted to LPL.

Just to echo techair's post - there were 45kt gusts at MAN last night. I was quite surprised GR670 made it in this morning with the weather we've had.

Iím not surprised they made it in, Aurigny crews are used to these sort of winds on a almost weekly basis down in the Channel Islands.

Supposedly de-icers malfunction causing ice build up. Source though Facebook ( from a passenger on board )

I know what the CI weather can be like! My surprise was that they managed it after the divert last night, as the wind was even worse this morning, but I suppose every day is different.

A few bits of info coming out in the local media the past few days, however will reserve judgement on how correct the finer points are from what the media has written as haven't seen the presentation that Aurigny did...
  • Outcome of whether the Embraer stays is likely to be known in the next few months
  • If the Embraer goes then it was suggested Aurigny would want up to 9 slot pairs in total at LGW.
  • X2 additional ATR72-600s leased (not sure if this was to replace just the Embraer or the Embraer and Dorniers if the Alderney runway extension happens as different media are saying different things
  • Agreements with Emirates and British Airways incoming.
  • The airline has been looking at LCY again (presume this links to a BA codeshare) but would prefer to only use Gatwick for London/ South-East flying

Noticed on the Start of Season Summer 2022 slot report for Heathrow that Aurigny are down as having enough slots for x2 daily return flights on the Embraer, using Terminal 2.

On the basis that they see Gatwick as their London airport and they have their schedules filled for the summer I guess they will remain as unused.

Both Aurigny and Blue Islands seem to (from local media / social media posts) have issues with their new routes to/from Dublin from the channel islands. Apparently to do with Brexit issues / operating licences. GR have a temporary licence until first week of April according to facebook posts, whilst Blue Islands weren't granted a temporary. Both flights appear to be operating / will operate into Belfast.

The first flight affected is the 12 April as it stands. I'm due to travel on 14th so hoping it gets resolved but all flights from the 12th for the rest of April are being sold as a flight to Belfast with bus transfer - travel time 4 hour 30 minutes.

If they have to fly to Belfast then the aircraft will sit on the ground for a few hours as the bus departure time from Dublin is pretty much in line with when the flight would be due to leave.

​​​​​​​The email from Aurigny says another temporary permit will not be issued, so it's full permit or nothing.

Belfast flights starting from Tuesday in place of Dublin, with a revised timetable most days (9.45am departure from GCI, arrived back at 20.55) with the aircraft on the ground for most of the day as the issue is still going on.

From what someone told me, the Brexit agreement makes no allowances for unrestricted flights between the Channel Islands and Rep. of Ireland for none European airlines so Aurigny and Blue Islands can't do anything until the Irish government change the scheme and issue permits.

The Emerald service from DUB to JER is not affected.

All ACI flights cancelled today, initially die to 'hole' in the runway & latterly due to technical issues with the 228.
I say the 228 as only one has been in service since the end of January - G-ETAC hasn't flown since 29 Jan 2022!!

Shocking All ACI flights down on Easter weekend due to Both Dorniers down with tech issues

Feel sorry for the hoteliers!

Was this a chance for Air Alderney?

What is the problem with the Dornier? Arenít they relatively new? If these types of planes can operate reliably somewhere like Nepal why canít they operate reliably here?

Seems as if ETAC is now serviceable! Anyone know why it hasn’t flown since January, the annual not being due until Sept.?
