Aurigny Air Services-3

Intriguingly Teesside, Newcastle, Aberdeen and Belfast City have appeared in Aurigny's timetable section with Southampton listed as the destination. No flights appear to have been loaded. Likely just a glitch?

Are they part of the code share with Eastern airways https://www.business-live.co.uk/econ...y-19055329.amp

Does the new MD see money to be made with routes other than GCI originating I wonder?

Southampton to Teesside is a dormant Eastern airlines route.

Well, unless the States are going to continue bailing them out, ad infinitum, they are going to have to find some somewhere !

They are codesharing with Eastern, which may explain it.

Slightly Different

This is a slightly different view of Aurigny, the staff and aircraft.

Bravo Aurigny !

Love it ! I had suggested on Facebook to Aurigny a couple of weeks ago that they should try and do a Jerusalema and Jess Mauger replied to say they are on it !

Am I missing something ? Seems pretty pointless to me. More taxpayers’ money down the drain ?

Channel Islands’ carriers reveal post-Covid codeshare plan | Travel Weekly

Interesting idea (...& maybe a cunning ploy to keep any resumption by FlyBe at bay?)

Doubt if much extra expenditure was incurred. But, judging by the response on social media, the public's response has been very favourable.

Another fiasco ! We saw that with the Jersey route code-share. Dumped, lets be frank, because BI had a new JV with Flybe.

Aurigny must get a deal struck with BA ! That will improve greatly the island's connectivity. And now is the best time to get a deal done ! Failing that, they why not with KLM/AF as Southampton has the KLM connection now.

Fair enough, if that’s what the staff want to do - & it is good to see them having some pride & support for the airline - but it does nothing for me. However, it’s not me who they’ve got to impress.

Aurigny to provide a Dornier to ZeroAvia. Anyone know if this is the fate of G-SAYE? https://www.flightglobal.com/aerospa...144365.article

In other news, a route to Mallorca is being mulled for Sundays in August.

What about the proposed trial of the ATR on the Alderney routes - is this really going to happen ?

Can the ATR operate off Alderney’s runway?

It was mentioned on the Channel TV news yesterday, but I may not have taken it all in correctly. Maybe they will trial the ATR IF the States approve a runway extension at Alderney. The way I thought I heard it was that AUR management were saying that they would consider the trial ( no mention of R/W extension).

Thou hath got thyself into a bit of a muddle.

The runways can’t handle ATR 72s. From a length perspective an ATR 42 (possibly with the additional thrust package) well below MTOW could use the runway but the runway and apron are insufficient in terms of strength and I imagine width.

Aurigny is supporting the Ports of Guernsey and in the next couple of weeks as part of the study an ATR will make some low-level approaches into Alderney without landing.

Mr Bezuidenhout continued: “Although this work does not necessarily mean the runway will be extended, it is important work to ensure the right fix for the future of Alderney services by weighing up the cost and benefit of the various options.”

Aurigny is committed to regular daily return services between Guernsey and Alderney and Alderney and Southampton whatever the outcome of the study and any future aircraft. The service levels between the island are and will continue to be based on demand and will seasonally fluctuate.

Deputy Peter Roffey noted: “Ensuring service delivery that enable economic development and social wellbeing is critical in every society. Through the PSO we have secured services today, whilst keeping an eye on future-proofing infrastructure to be fit-for-purpose for delivery into the future.”

Bill Abel, Chairman of Alderney’s Policy & Finance Committee, said: "The planned test approaches show the thoroughness that is being applied to the evaluation of the proposed extension of the runway to accommodate the use of ATRs and we look forward to the completion of this important report later this year.” Ends
The idea will be to look at the ATR’s tolerance for Alderney from an operational point of view, ie wind-shear over the cliffs on approach to runway 08, etc.
