The regional airline Aurigny, based on the Channel Island of Guernsey, will withdraw from jet jet operations. In the future we will be operating as a pure tubroprop operator again.

The carrier currently has a single Embraer 195, the G-NSEY. This is mainly used between London-Gatwick and Guernsey. In the future, they want to fly on this route with ATR72-600. They are looking for a buyer for the regional jet. The proceeds will also be used to expand the fleet.

Aurigny Air Services explains that it wants to add two additional ATR72-600s. These are supposed to be leasing aircraft. In 2014, Embraer 195, which the carrier now wants to get rid of, entered the fleet. The fleet also consists of two Dornier 228s.

The company believes that the ATR72-600 machine type is more suitable for the business area in which it operates. It is emphasized that reliability would be higher and that costs would be reduced due to lower fuel consumption. Weight should also play a role, because with the turboprop the take-off and landing fees would be lower.
