One of the oldest and smallest carriers in the world has been judged as the best short-haul airline in an annual readers’ survey carried out by the influential consumer magazine: Which?. 

Aurigny, which was launched in 1968 and is owned by the government of the island of Guernsey has held off the challenge from many larger, more well-known carriers such as Swiss, British Airways, easyjet, Flybe and Ryanair. 

'This is great news and we obviously delighted,' says Aurigny Commercial Director, Malcolm Coupar.  

'We might be small but we try very hard to make the passenger experience as enjoyable and stress-free as possible so getting such a commendation from our customers is the best praise there is. To sit above some of the most famous names in the airline industry is an achievement for which we are very proud.

'We would like to thank all our staff, our shareholders in the States of Guernsey and all our customers for their fantastic support in helping us to achieve this accolade.’

Aurigny is based in Guernsey and sits between the coasts of England and France. The airline flies between the islands of Jersey, Guernsey and Alderney as well as to important UK hubs such as Gatwick, Manchester, East Midlands, Bristol, Southampton and Stansted. It also runs a regular service to Dinard in Brittany. 

'2013 has been a year of planning following flybe's withdrawal from the Guernsey - Gatwick route. 2014 will be a year of action as we introduce our new Embraer jet service to Gatwick and we look at replacing the Trislander aircraft. We hope that the new initiatives we introduce will further enhance the experience of our passengers.

‘All in all, it’s a great way to end to a very exciting year!’
