Description

Our latest ‘Post and Go’ stamps feature some of the best-known aircraft, which have served the Bailiwick of Guernsey over the years (issue date: 17 February 2021).

Blue Islands commenced operations as an Alderney based carrier delivering produce to a supermarket on the island. Now a regional airline, the Blue Island ATR 72 is the largest of its fleet.

Aurigny began jet operations in July 2014 when it took delivery of the Embraer E-195 G-NSEY, which is primarily used on the Guernsey to Gatwick route. The Brazilian-built aircraft is a well-known regional carrier with airlines all the over the world.

FlyBe was first established as Jersey European Airways (JEA) and its small commuter aircraft helped link Jersey and Guernsey with the UK mainland and Northern France. The stamp depicts the Flybe Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 which was designed to seat 80 passengers and has almost jet-like performance compared with older generation turboprop aircraft.

 The Guernsey Airlines Shorts 330 was a frequent sight on the Guernsey route in the 1980s and 1990s. Known as the ‘shed’, this box-like turboprop had a spacious cabin with large windows.

 The De Haviland Canada Dash 8-200 was one of the last of JEA’s fleet before it became Flybe. The smallest of the Dash 8 series, a 37-seat regional turboprop was well suited for Guernsey’s small airport and short runway.

 The Vickers Viscount began carrying passengers in 1953 and British Midland Airways were regular visitors to Guernsey. The distinctive whistle and whine of the engines could be heard around the Channel Islands for decades.

 Although the Channel Islands generally enjoy more sunshine than the rest of the UK, blankets of fog often sweep in without warning and disrupt air travel, sometimes for days on end. The image on this set’s Presentation Pack features Guernsey’s Air Traffic Control Tower with an ATR-72 and a British Aerospace Jetstream 31 both grounded by the fog.
