The old terminal of Guernsey Airport, September 2003.

Guernsey Airport (IATA: GCI, ICAO: EGJB) is the largest airport in the Bailiwick of Guernsey and is the only airport on the island of Guernsey. It is located in the Forest, a parish in Guernsey, 2.5 NM (4.6 km; 2.9 mi) west southwest of St. Peter Port. It was officially opened on 5 May 1939. However, regular air services only commenced in October 1946.

Work started on a new terminal building in 2002, which became operational on 19 April 2004. The old terminal was demolished in May 2004 to make space for additional aircraft stands and a passenger walkway from the new terminal. The new terminal should be able to handle about 1.25 million passengers per year.

In 2009, 937,391 passengers used the airport, with 57,634 aircraft movements.

Runways

Until 1960 there were four grass runways, with lengths ranging from 2,040 ft (622 m) to 3,060 ft (933 m). In 1960, the new tarmacked runway of a length of 4,800 ft (1,463 m) was opened. It is still in use today, although some airlines and other interested groups claim an extension is necessary to allow use of more modern aircraft, such as Flybe, who want to be able to bring their Embraer 195s into Guernsey, rather than the smaller de Havilland Dash 8s, to feed the tourist industry during the summer season.

After many years of debate it was announced on the 2nd October 2009 that Guernsey's airport runway and apron will be repaired at an estimated cost of £81m.
