Still good to see they haven't canned the route completely for the remainder of the summer. Even a week of potential routes would help people get to where they want to be and to even a few days holiday on a lovely island.

Looks like Aurginy are entering into a partnership Eastern Airways to offer codeshare agreement through its Southampton base. I'm not sure if this will have any effect Aurigny's direct Leeds/Bradford - Guernsey service, but it may well help add some pax on Eastern's Leeds/Bradford - Southampton on the days the direct flights don't operate,

I suppose it depends on how someone views good news. Reducing weekly frequencies from four to two, whatever the reason, might not immediately be seen as good news by some people. Obviously it's better than reducing four to nil. Perhaps we should have something called 'not as bad as it might have been news'.

It's a bit like the football manager who says there are positives to be taken from a match after his team has lost 6-0. The only positive I could ever see was that it wasn't 7-0.

Aurigny didn't even operate in 2020, whilst summer 2019 it was only 3x weekly (Tue, Thu & Sat) using mainly the older & smaller ATR42.

Actually 2x weekly (Mon &. Fri) frequency is not as bad as you might think! It will allow for long weekends or full week breaks. Plus they will now be using the brand new, larger ATR72-600's so seating capacity on the route is up.

46 x 3+ ATR42-500 = 138 (2019)
72 x 2+ ATR72-600 = 144 (2021)

Sadly it's now looking like Aurigny Air Services have also further delayed the restart of their 2x weekly (Mon & Fri) summer seasonal Leeds/Bradford to Guernsey route until Monday, July 19th.

That is disappointing as I was looking forward to getting a catch of their new ATR’s
