History of Aurigny Air
The airline was founded in March of 1968. At the same time, British Airways withdrew their service from Alderney to Guernsey and the islands still needed connecting flights. Aurigny Air is the first and only commercial airline operator to use the Trisland, an 18-seat aircraft, nicknamed Joey. In 1977 Aurigny was the first airline in the world to ban smoking from its flights. This has been followed by every other airline since. In 1993 the small airline became the official mail carrier of letters and parcels from England to the Channel Islands. Since then the airline has added aircraft to its fleet and is now the most popular airline from Guernsey.
