Using a helicopter to ensure deliveries continue is the "most cost-effective and practical solution" to airport closures, Guernsey Post has said.

The airport is due to close for a total of eight days in 2012 to allow work as part of a £80m airfield refurbishment.

The company has been using a helicopter to transport special delivery and greeting cards during the closures.

Cassandra Morris, communication co-ordinator, said it was the best of various options they had explored.

She said: "The cost of the helicopter is almost entirely offset by the cancellation of the normal mail plane."

The second of four two-day closures is due to take place on 8-9 May.
