Aurigny update – consolidating its schedule19th March 2020
Following stricter border controls being introduced overnight in Guernsey and the States of Guernsey advising that all non-essential travel must stop with immediate effect, and that anyone returning to the island on ANY Aurigny flights from ANY destination (excluding only Alderney) are now required to self-isolate for 14 days, Aurigny are going to be reducing their schedule and offering a revised timetable from, 05.00 on Saturday 21st March 2020.
This schedule will run for travel up to and including 19th April 2020, but is subject to change at short notice due to the evolving situation.
CUSTOMERS ARE ASKED TO READ FULL INSTRUCTIONS BELOW AND NOT TO CALL OUR CALL CENTRE UNLESS ADVISED TO DO SO.
Revised schedule from Saturday 21st March 2020.
For the period 21st March to 19th April, Aurigny is suspending services to Birmingham, Bristol, East Midlands, Exeter, London Stansted, and reducing the frequency of services to London Gatwick, Southampton and Manchester. Please note that this is a temporary measure to reduce costs in this unprecedented period of low demand. We are hoping to resume normal services for the busy summer period and are presently planning for suspended routes to be reintroduced on the 20th of April. This recommencement date will be regularly reviewed and may be adjusted in accordance with demand for travel. Regular notices will be issued about our plans and timetable.
If you are travelling over this coming weekend 21/22 March, you should already have received a message if your flight has been changed.
The planned schedule from 23rd March to 19th April is detailed below:

The situation is changing very quickly, and Aurigny are obliged to follow Government advice. Should we have to reduce services further or offer only one lifeline route then the flights GR606 and GR607 to and from Gatwick will be the last flights to be cancelled.
Aurigmy will do its best to maintain this revised schedule for at least 48 hours after any further Government instructions, but in this current climate the carrier is unable to guarantee this.
