Aurigny not to charge for baggage

Post by GD on Thu 20 Jan 2011, 10:12 pm

Guernsey States-owned airline Aurigny says it has no plans to charge passengers for baggage.
The airline, which lost 1.6m in 2009 and had lost 1.4m by November 2010, said this was despite the fact it could be a revenue earner.
Malcolm Coupar, commercial director, said in reality the additional costs could drive away regular passengers.
He said the charge was a practice that was known to be unpopular with travellers.
Mr Coupar said: "Excess baggage, or in fact baggage full stop, is one of the contentious issues that people have with the low cost carriers.
"It's undoubtedly a revenue opportunity, but it could alienate our regular customers and I don't think the revenues we'd collect from baggage charges would replace that revenue." (from BBC)

......THE BOSS......

"Always be yourself because the people who mind don't matter, and the people who matter don't mind"
