Through the Emergency Powers (Coronavirus) (General Provision) (Bailiwick of Guernsey) (No. 3) Regulations, 2020, the Civil Contingencies Authority has imposed a requirement on all persons arriving in the Bailiwick from anywhere in the world to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival. This is a legal requirement, and failure to comply is a criminal offence. In your 14 days of mandatory isolation, you must not leave your accommodation and you must not leave the Island.
Please note that there will be a 7-day mandatory self-isolation trial period for those arriving into Guernsey between 5-10th July 2020 via Condor and Aurigny only. Those who take part in this trial must adhere to the following: For days 1-7, you must not leave your accommodation and you must not leave the Island. Once you have received your negative COVID-19 test, during days 8-14 you are under passive surveillance (details below). This means that you must not leave the Island until after day 14 of arriving.

Flight bookings after 31 August 2020
We are guided by the latest travel advice and government restrictions which mean that our services are monitored regularly, and it is probable there will be significant cancellations for the foreseeable future. Currently on arrival in Guernsey you will be required to complete a landing form and you are required to self-isolate for 14 days immediately on arrival. If you are already booked to fly with Aurigny you may wish to cancel now and make a claim on your travel insurance, change your flights for future dates, or you may wait for further updates concerning your flight. Any cancellations are advised by email/text message.
However, we do know that many of our customers take connecting flights and that some of these are now being cancelled. Onward cruises/holidays may also be cancelled and there is an increasing list of destinations with travel restrictions.
Having taken advice, Aurigny is issuing the following guidelines for its customers in line with similar airlines and the rest of the industry affected at this time.
- If you have flights booked but your onward holiday/connecting flight cancelled
- If the destination your onward travel is to has now been added to the restricted list

- If you are concerned about travelling at this time due to an ongoing medical condition or because you feel you may be in the ‘vulnerable’ group and no longer wish to travel
- If you no longer wish to travel in this current climate
If for any of the above reasons you wish to change or cancel your Aurigny booking, normal change and cancellation fees will apply in accordance with the ticket type purchased.
