About us

We are Waves — a highly experienced team of business individuals and airline professionals with a passion for travel, customer satisfaction, and the Channel Islands.

It's been a difficult few years for inter-island air travel. But that is about to change. The islands' community need a new forward thinking carrier, with an innovative approach, who can offer an alternative to existing services.

We need an operator that uses aircraft that are brand new, reliable, cost-effective, easily maintained, and perfect for Channel Island conditions.

We need affordable, fixed-price flights to Guernsey, Jersey, Alderney, Northern France, and the South of England. We need a service that moves with the times and embraces the fast evolving new technology available to all of us. That's the solution! So Waves has created it… and it's about to take off!
