Aurigny staff have been put to work in the community while many of its services are postponed.
Aurigny Aid will see staff lend a hand to those in isolation, businesses in need, and anyone with a request, providing the job complies with government advice.
‘We hope the crisis will be short-lived and we will all be back doing what we do best shortly, which is running our much-loved community airline. However, while our staff are not able to do their day-to-day jobs and are not being utilised elsewhere in the business, they are all keen to help out and keep busy during this difficult time as long as we are able in line with the advice from the States,’ said Mark Darby, chief executive.
Aurigny staff will not be able to transport passengers or deal with money. However, they can pick-up pre-paid prescriptions, collect shopping, dog-walk, and help fill short or longer term positions in businesses suffering staff shortages.
Requests can be registered on the Aurigny Aid website or by calling 01481 268888. Staff will be answering the Aurigny Aid hotline seven days a week between the hours of 8am and 6pm, and Aurigny employees will be available for services between 9am and 5pm.
