Some believe a jet service is more modern,popular and prestigious especially for an International Finance Centre like Guernsey, Others would say that the new generation of turbo props are quiet,efficient and comfortable and there is little difference in service. Everybody will make their choices according to their own perceptions. Regardless of all this, it is a fact that the turbo prop is far more fuel efficient than a jet, particularly on shorter journeys. A fuel consumption of half that of a jet on a typical 300 mile route cannot be ignored by any operator. For example, I read in Airinsight that Virgin Australia is trading out relatively new regional jets on shorter routes in favour of turbo props for this very reason. With the high price of oil and the poor economic climate,Turbo Props have to be taken seriously now. It remains to be seen whether or not jet services on short routes to Guernsey are sustainable. Only time will tell.
