Guernsey's government-owned airline Aurigny will introduce hold baggage charges from next week as part of a wider fare shake-up.

The airline will introduce three new fare structures on the majority of its services, which it says will give passengers more flexibility.

The "light" fares will be the cheapest but include no hold luggage or flexibility whereas the "flexi" fare will offer the most flexibility but will also be the most expensive.

Aurigny says it hopes the fares will boost passenger numbers by reducing the average ticket price by about £10.

The baggage charges won't apply to the Alderney, Southampton, Dinard and Grenoble routes.
