Alderney Airport

Alderney is unique amongst Channel Islands airports, in having three operational runways. The main runway, 26/08 is 880 metres long and is mainly asphalt. The two secondary runways are both grass. 13/31 being 732 metres long, with 03/21 having a length of 497 metres. The main runway is equipped with low intensity lighting, with portable lighting being available on runway 14/32. Alderney has an NDB (383.0 KHz ‘ALD’), providing a useful approach aid, together with recently approved GPS approaches.

Visiting pilots are requested to visit the Flight Clearance Office on arrival (adjacent to the Fire Station) to pay fees. A self-briefing unit is also available in the Flight Clearance Office and free wifi is available in the terminal. Hangar space is limited, especially during the summer months. Tie downs however, are normally available.

Guernsey Airport

There is a lot to see and do in Guernsey and there is a regular bus service from outside the main terminal building (a short walk from ASG) to St Peter Port and other parts of the Island.

Guernsey Airport welcomes general aviation and business aviation visitors and GARs are not needed for flights between Guernsey and Alderney (assuming a GAR has been completed on arrival in Alderney). All that is required is a simple ‘Mini Flight Plan’ which can be downloaded here. On arrival, ATC will normally direct GA aircraft to ASG (or Stand 23) which acts as handling agents for private and business aviation. More information can be found on the Guernsey Airport website.

Full details of Landing and Parking charges can be found here.
