- Aurigny Air Services Limited, commonly known as Aurigny, launched a twelve times weekly service between Southampton (SOU) and Guernsey (GCI) on 23 May. The route which will operate twice-daily between Monday to Friday initially in its first week of operations will expand its service by operating a daily connection over the weekends. According to OAG Schedules Analyser, the short 190-kilometre sector distance will utilise an ATR7 aircraft to operate the route, but will face direct competition from Flybe which operate this route 29 times weekly. Neil Garwood, Managing Director at Southampton Airport commented: “We are thrilled to celebrate the launch of the new Guernsey route with Aurigny, which reinforces our position as the very best gateway to the Channel Islands. We look forward to further nurturing our excellent relationship with Aurigny and will continue to work with the airline to offer the best customer experience to our passengers.”
