Air Southwest to launch Guernsey service

2nd February 2009 - 18:28 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


UK-based low-fare regional airline Air Southwest is launching a new service from Plymouth to Guernsey. The flights will start from 8 April and run every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

Mike Coombes, deputy chief executive at Air Southwest, remarked, “This new service increases the number of destinations on offer from Plymouth City Airport to 11 and we hope that it will make a significant contribution to the Guernsey’s economy. We’re also aware of a number of students from Guernsey studying at the University of Plymouth, so we hope that we will become their airline of choice.”

Air Southwest has operated regular flights from Plymouth to Jersey in the Channel Islands for the last five years.

The airline applied to Guernsey's Commerce and Employment department for permission to operate the new service just before Christmas 2008, and that licence has now been granted.
