London Gatwick Airport's new Guernsey flights 'bucks a trend'

Mon, 27 Apr, 2009

London Gatwick Airport's new flight to Guernsey is "bucking" the trend for airlines ending their services to the Channel Islands, according to its carrier.

Flybe is adding an additional in and outbound service to the destination from June 29th.

The new service will depart the capital's facility at 15.50 BST, with the return flight leaving Guernsey at 17.15 BST.

Fares start at £29.99 one-way, including taxes and charges.

Chief commercial officer at the firm Mike Rutter has commented that the move proves it is "committed" to improving transport links for people living in the ocean between England and France.

"[We] offer the perfect choice for leisure and business travellers alike," he said.

Mr Rutter added the services presented "affordability and flexibility".

Those wanting to take advantage of airport parking facilities at the Sussex hub are advised that it is located between London and Brighton – it is 28 miles from either city.
