Yes, £50 fixed handling fee + landing fee at GAMA. Fuel £1.30 a litre at the moment. The COVID-19 test station is 100 metres from GAMA and has drive-through and walk-in capability. No isolation requirements whilst waiting for result, My test took 30 seconds through the open window of my car.

@Iceman - when you get back, can you send me some feedback on the whole experience? I will send you a message with my work email and I can get it back to the Airport Director.

I've used GAMA because we had to - Caravans are 3.8 tons. And I objected because they don't provide anything I actually need, although they have always been efficient. Last quote I had from them was triple that (plus tax), so we declined.

Is there still the event?

Jersey Air Rally finished at least a decade ago when no one at the club wanted to take over the organisation from the lovely Evelyn.

I was parked next to Iceman by all accounts.. Gama were very helpful and the Covid test was easy plus quick to get the result.

However, as a regular visitor, my opinion is that the “handling” of £50 just to walk through reception is going to be a barrier for many - especially those popping in for cheap fuel and lunch..
