Aurigny to launch new flight to Jersey from Stansted

Aurigny Air Services will launch a new flight to Jersey from Stansted on May 1st.

Aurigny Air Services will launch a new flight to Jersey from Stansted on May 1st.

The airline has said it expects the flight to be "extremely popular" with more Brits expected to book flights closer to home and to non-eurozone countries this summer.

Malcolm Coupar, Aurigny’s commercial director, said that, as well as holidaymakers, he hoped the route would "strengthen connections" for people who need to travel to the Channel Island on business.

"We believe that being able to fly to Jersey in addition to our Guernsey flights will prove to be extremely popular as the islands have some of the best beaches and restaurants in the whole of the British Isles," he said.

Mr Coupar added that one of the appeals of Jersey was that British holidaymakers could experience a destination with a European flavour without having to leave the UK.

Aurigny, which is named after the French word for Alderney, was recently voted the third best short-haul carrier in a survey by consumer magazine Which?.

The airline, which was founded in Alderney in 1968, will now offer four flights from the Channel Island.
