New Fareham to Alderney Air Link on the Cards

Published: 12th September 2017 14:31

Fareham Borough Council is excited to announce talks are underway about bringing the first scheduled passenger flights to Solent Airport at Daedalus.

Regional and City Airports are working closely with Air Alderney to progress this exciting proposal which seeks to create a daily service from the Channel Islands to Solent Airport. 

The announcement comes in the Airport’s centenary year.

Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Seán Woodward, said:

“This could be great news for both Solent Airport and for Fareham. Already a thriving airport for private flyers and an increasing number of business people, establishing a scheduled passenger service will open the Airport up to a whole new range of customers, whilst Fareham will benefit from more visitors coming to the town.” 

If the plans go ahead passengers will be able to board an eight seater Islander plane to take them to the island of Alderney. The manufacturer of the planes, Britten Norman, is actually based at Solent Airport from where the Islander aircraft has operated from for many years. 

 

Danny Wilson, Air Alderney, said: ‘We are looking forward to working with Solent Airport to get this exciting idea off the ground!’

A decision on the new air service is expected in the next few months.
