From Tuesday 21 July 2020, business tunnel travel can be facilitated without the need for mandatory self-isolation provided it is carried out in a controlled environment. Travel to and from the airport hangars or terminal building must not be on public transport. Social distancing of one metre must be maintained at all times. Contacts must be recorded for tracing purposes and should be minimised. Passengers must wear face masks as they pass through the airport and in the transport to their meeting location.
From Tuesday 28 July 2020, business tunnel travel can be facilitated by scheduled service with Aurigny. Initially, the day-return rotations will operate on Tuesdays and Thursdays from Southampton Airport.
Please See the Aurigny website for more information and bookings: www.aurigny.com.
For those organising business tunnel travel through a private or charter flight only, an option will be to host a face to face socially distanced meeting at the Fixed Base Operator hangar site. This will also require the recording of all meeting attendants, together with the observation of social distancing of one metre and the implementation of hygiene precautions.
Guernsey Ports and Public Health Guernsey have been working with the two main Fixed Base Operators, Aiglle Flight Support and ASG-Pula Aviation Services, to provide such a solution. Contact information for both operators is provided here:
The arrangement with these operators is based on the use of private or charter aircraft and includes the option of booking meeting facilities within the ASG and Aiglle hangars. The operators will ensure that flights operate only when weather and visibility are forecast to be good enough to arrive and return on the same day, and that they have robust contingency plans in the event that the aircraft suffers from technical problems. Passenger details must be submitted by the FBOs in advance to the Guernsey Border Agency per standard practice.
