Press Release - Arrival of New Dornier Welcomed

For immediate release: 30th Aug 2018

The States of Alderney has welcomed the imminent delivery of Aurigny's new Dornier. The second Dornier 228 NG is expected to be in service next week and its registration will be G-ETAC. James Dent, Chairman of the Policy and Finance Committee said "The second new Dornier should help to improve reliability and make it easier to schedule crew. We hope that this will be a turning point for Aurigny. Over the last few years Alderney has had to put up with a sub-standard service and too many technical disruptions to the air service."

The new aircraft arrives at a time when the States of Guernsey are putting the finishing touches to the specification for a Public Service Obligation (PSO) tender which will be launched soon. This will set out the expected level of service for the Alderney routes to Guernsey and Southampton and the subsidy paid to the operator.
