Aurigny has begun four times weekly flights from Guernsey to Leeds Bradford on 27 May. Despite this cake looking like the airline’s E195 G-NSEY, the flight will be operated by one of its ATR 42s.
- Aurigny, the national airline of the Channel Islands state of Guernsey (GCI), commenced flights to Leeds Bradford (LBA) on 27 May, after recently beginning a Norwich service on 14 May. The 494-kilometre sector will be operated four times weekly by the airline’s 46-seat ATR 42 fleet. The year-round city pair will face no direct competition. Tony Hallwood, Leeds Bradford Airport’s Aviation Development Director, said: “It’s fantastic to launch this inaugural flight linking Leeds Bradford to Guernsey. We’re proud to introduce Aurigny and would like to extend a warm Yorkshire welcome to the airline. Passengers will now very much enjoy being able to travel to Guernsey directly from Leeds Bradford all year. Malcolm Coupar, Aurigny’s Commercial Director, added: “Leeds Bradford is a welcome addition to the Aurigny network. It becomes our eighth, year-round destination to Guernsey.”
