If you are travelling to Guernsey from the UK you do not need a passport, but most airlines do require you to show a valid photo ID before boarding (valid forms of identification include passport, driving licence, or citizen card).

Check-in time is usually an hour prior to departure, but do check with the airline before you fly, just in case. Most airlines provide an online check-in service, but you can check in at the airport too.

There are no flight calls at the airport so you should keep your eye on the screens. Once you have passed through security you will find ample seating, a Duty Free shop, a restaurant and bar, plus a WHSmiths. Passengers are also able to enjoy free Wi-Fi and a TV.
