No Waves until September

The little Channel Island airline Waves has put a halt to all flying until September due to previous licensing problems.

The air taxi service launched in November and billed itself as the 'uber of the skies', however, it didn't get the start it hoped for. The little air taxi firm was prevented from selling single seats following complaints from Blue Islands. 

Waves CEO, Nick Magliocchetti said, "The application process was lengthy and the delays damaged momentum at a time when Waves was gaining significant ground, which ultimately had a detrimental effect on the business, our staff and our customers."

The company will now use the next two months to refocus its business mdel and "strengthening its position in the market" according to Nick Magliocchetti, the airline will also spend part of the next two months looking at how the airline can expand its fleet and flying routes.  

The airline is due to restart flying on 1st September and all passengers set to fly with the airline before this date will be offered a full refund.

Is it the Uber of the skies

A new airline is set to start in the Channel Islands that aims to be the Uber of the skies after getting its Air Operators’ Certificate by Guernsey’s air registry, 2-Reg.

The certification ensures the company, called 'Waves' can start carrying passengers on its on-demand air taxi service.  "I am incredibly proud of the whole team in achieving our AOC. This has been the culmination of six months of hard work and is the first major milestone in enabling us to deliver a new style of travel to the Channel Islands" said Waves chief operations officer Matt Bisson.

"We are thrilled to be the first Channel Islands-based airline able to fly 2-Reg aircraft commercially. The team at 2-Reg has really put us through our paces, holding us accountable to the highest international standards but with an approachable and accessible team of locally based experts."
