The return flight will depart Leeds Bradford at 14:10, arriving in Guernsey just before 16:00.
From October to May, the service will run on Mondays and Fridays at the same times, allowing customers from the Channel Islands to enjoy off season weekend breaks away.
“Leeds Bradford is a welcome addition to the Aurigny network and it’ll offer a gateway to Leeds and Yorkshire to our local customers. Also easily accessible from Leeds Bradford are Harrogate and York,” noted Malcolm Coupar, Aurigny’s commercial director. “We anticipate a lot of interest in what will be the eighth year round destination served by Aurigny and our first new link since the introduction of London City in September 2014.”
Tony Hallwood, Leeds Bradford Airport’s aviation development director, continued, “We are pleased to welcome Aurigny to Leeds Bradford, introducing direct services to Guernsey commencing May 2016. This new service will now allow fast and direct access to one of the airport’s most widely requested destinations and we expect significant leisure demand from across our catchment area. We believe this year round route will become a firm favourite with our passengers who enjoy visiting Guernsey. We now look forward to developing a long lasting relationship with Aurigny and enhancing and widening our connectivity with the Channel Islands.”
