Flying to the Channel Islands? Then you’ll be pleased to hear that Guernsey Airport (GCI/ EGJB) has been added to our network and you can use your Sterling Card to refuel with Jet A-1 and Avgas at the airport.
Open all year round from 06.30 to 21.00, Guernsey Airport is a great choice for business and general aviation customers as there are several fixed-base operators (FBOs) here, including ASG, Aiglle and Rubis. The neighbouring islands of Alderney and Jersey are also easily accessible from Guernsey, as is the UK and other European destinations.
Guernsey itself is just 12 miles long, so it’s easy to get around once you’ve landed and St Peter Port, the island’s capital, is around 10 minutes from the airport.
As Guernsey is one of the latest locations to be added to our network, we thought we’d share some of the quirky facts about the island that we’ve come across.
Did you know?
- Guernsey is not part of the UK. It’s a self-governing British Crown dependency with its own parliament, government and its own laws.
- The Channel Islands have their own micro climate and are the sunniest destination in the British Isles. The islands enjoy more than 2,000 hours of sunshine each year.
- All Guernsey’s post boxes are blue, except one which is red and is found on Union Street in St Peter Port.
