Airport runway to reopen on Sundays


Guernsey's Airport's runway will reopen on Sundays from today, as lockdown restrictions continue to ease.

The runway will be open from 10:00 until 16:00, allowing aircraft operators more opportunity to carry out maintenance flights.

The changes also apply to Alderney Airport.

All flights must be arranged through a fixed based operator or the Guernsey Aero Club, and pilots must give at least 24 hours' notice.

'Prior Permission is Required' procedures will need to be followed.

The flights have to be operated within Guernsey Airport's current published operating hours and airport extensions aren't available.

Due to a lack of demand for commercial flights, in line with Public Health's non-essential travel ban, the passenger terminals will remain closed on Sundays. This remains under review and will return to normal when States advice permits it.

No changes have been made to medevac operations, including the transportation of urgent medical and pathology supplies.
