Flybe will assess reconditioned runway before taking jet decision
Monday 14th January 2013, 4:00PM GMT.
FLYBE will assess conditions after the runway redevelopment is finished before making a decision on whether it will bring its Embraer 175 jet aircraft to Guernsey.
A spokesman said the performance and suitability of the aircraft to the new runway would have to be looked at.
‘A decision can only be made once the conditions assessment has been completed,’ he said.
Flybe has ordered 140 of the jets in a $5bn deal.
After securing a loan in 2011, it announced it would roll the fleet out with the first 35 phased in over the next four years.
