Credit: Waves

A new Channel Islands airline can now start carrying passengers.

Waves has been granted an Air Operators' Certificate by Guernsey’s air registry, 2-Reg.

The certificate means the company can start operating an on-demand air taxi service.

The company is the first Channel Islands-based airline able to fly 2-Reg aircraft commercially.

Waves will now begin its freight operation and start the soft launch of its passenger service.

We’re in final testing of our booking system and our security app as well as ensuring that our pilots are fully trained. We’ll be testing the entire customer experience from booking, check in, boarding and disembarkation using family and friends to ensure that it meets our exacting standards.
