Aurigny launches London City to Guernsey service
28 July 2014
Guernsey airline Aurigny will start flights to London City on Monday 8 September.
The twice-daily service between London City and Guernsey will give the Island's business travelers increased access to the capital.
The first flight out of London City will depart at 9.15am with the last return from Guernsey departing at 5pm. Fares will start from £89 each way and can be booked from today on Aurigny.com.
"As a world-renowned international finance centre, Guernsey relies heavily on its links with London both for business opportunities and to link up with colleagues on Island or in the City," said Aurigny Chief Executive Mark Darby.
"By adding two flights each way each week day to and from London City, combined with our London Gatwick and London Stansted services, we believe we have a very attractive offering for business commuters travelling in each direction.
"London City also offers an excellent range of onward connections to financial centres across Europe as well as the opportunity to connect to BA's New York service. Alongside these connections, London City offers a faster service for passengers with a short check in (door to lounge) of around 20 minutes, and a shorter arrival (tarmac to train) of around 15 minutes.'
Declan Collier, Chief Executive of London City Airport, said: "Aurigny's presence at LCY will grow much-needed air connectivity between London and the Channel Islands. We welcome today's announcement, which will keep London's business and financial districts on the doorstep of Guernsey's business community."
Aurigny's flight schedule to London City is as follows:
London City 0915 1030 Guernsey
London City 1845 2000 Guernsey
Guernsey 0730 0845 London City
Guernsey 1700 1815 London City
Aurigny will be wet leasing a Fokker 50 to operate on this route for the first four to eight weeks whilst it sources an additional ATR aircraft to join its fleet for the long term.Back to News
