Guernsey Airport (GCI)
(Guernsey, Channel Islands, GB)
Housed in a new, modern terminal building, Guernsey Airport (GCI) is a small facility providing access for Guernsey residents to Europe and mainland Britain, while also bringing holidaymakers to the island. Although the single terminal has an annual capacity for 1.25 million passengers, it generally sees around 900,000 passengers pass through the terminal each year.
Guernsey Airport is located in the La Planque area and within the parish of Forest, lying directly south of St. Saviour and east of Torteval. The facility has a single ATM in the main concourse and is opened between the hours of 05:30 and 20:00, except for the winter months, when it opens from 06:30 to 21:00. The main airlines at Guernsey Airport include Aurigny Air, Flybe and Blue Islands, which regularly offer flights to the neighbouring island of Jersey.
Local buses operated by Island Coachways run to nearby St. Peter Port and other popular destinations around the island of Guernsey, such as Torteval, Forest, St. Andrew and St. Martin. Taxis are available on arrival or alternatively they can be pre-booked. Also worth noting, some hotels on Guernsey provide shuttle services to their establishments.
About Guernsey Tourism
Guernsey is a scenic island within the English Channel and is blessed with a more agreeable climate than mainland Britain. Pretty and unspoilt beaches, historical sites and traditional rural charm are just some of the reasons that visitors opt to holiday in Guernsey.
St. Peter Port is the island's capital and is close to Guernsey Airport (GCI) itself, being home to a variety of museums and historic buildings. Worth noting is the Hauteville House, a historic stately home that was once the residence of Victor Hugo following his exile from France. Museums include the Guernsey Museum and Art Gallery, which offers glimpses of local history as well as some fine artwork. The island's proximity to France gives it an added attraction to visitors wishing to make short continental trips to nearby French destinations, such as Normandy.
