Statement by the Vice-President of the Transport Licensing Authority

Wednesday 18 March 2020

Transport Licensing Authority

In 2018, the States approved proposals from the Committee for Economic Development for a quasi open-skies policy under which airline operators serving routes, other than routes that were designated as "lifeline routes" would be exempt from the need to hold a Guernsey air transport licence.

The lifeline routes from Guernsey are Gatwick and Alderney.

As a consequence of the adoption of that policy, the Transport Licensing Authority has had no licence applications to determine since my last statement in June 2019.

I do not anticipate that the Authority will need to meet until such time as an operator is appointed to provide air transport services to Alderney under a public service obligation. In the event of such an appointment, the role of the Authority is clearly set out in the Policy Statement approved by the States in 2018.

As I have reported previously, the States' Assembly and Constitution Committee, in consultation with the Committee for Economic Development, the Policy & Resources Committee and the Transport Licensing Authority, is charged with carrying out a review the role and constitution of the Authority.
