Air passengers urged to leave time for the bus

Wednesday 12 December 2012

Guernsey Airport is advising passengers to arrive in good time to avoid delaying their flight.

Work has begun on the reconstruction of the concrete aprons areas, where passengers normally board or disembark the aircraft. This will require some planes to be relocated to areas further from the terminal, and the airport is providing a bus service to transfer passengers to and from the departure or arrival gates.

Airport Director Colin Le Ray said airline handling agents or ground staff need additional time to boards passengers if they require transfer by bus. Therefore anyone turning up late at the departure gate could delay an aircraft from taking off.

'Passengers need to leave themselves enough time to get through security and to the departure gate in good time in case a bus is required to take them out to their aircraft. It is a very quick transfer, but obviously getting everyone onto the bus does take some time.

'We would therefore ask everyone to pay attention to the minimum check-in time their airline advises.'

The reconstruction of the main aprons is being carried out in phases. Aircraft will be relocated to new hard surface areas at the eastern end of the airfield or west of the air traffic control tower.
