Low-fare regional airline Air Southwest has appointed the Channel Islands based company Aurigny to handle passenger check-in and baggage handling at Guernsey Airport ahead of the start of their new service to Plymouth City Airport next month.

The new flights, which will cost from £39 one-way including all taxes, will operate every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from 8 April.

Mike Coombes, deputy chief executive at Air Southwest, said: "The strength of the Euro is inevitably encouraging more people from the UK to consider taking holidays closer to home this year and our new flights will enable visitors from the South West to enjoy an island paradise without high eurozone prices and a long flight. The new service will also bring the delights of Devon and Cornwall within easy reach of travellers from Guernsey.

"I'm pleased that we have signed a contract with Aurigny as our handling agent and am sure that they will provide a very warm welcome and great service to our customers."
