Airline Blue Islands has made all of its 15 ground handling staff in Guernsey redundant. They will instead use Aurigny's services.

Aurigny and Blue Islands agreed to share some routes between the Channel Islands and the UK as a way of restoring connectivity.

The agreement is still subject to a consultation between the relevant authorities but both companies say they will remain independent, with pricing, promotion and customer care being managed by each airline independently.
