An airline boss has voiced concern about planned increases to security charges at Guernsey and Alderney airports.
The charges are set by the Board of Administration
Malcom Hart, managing director of Aurigny Air Services, is worried the proposals could have a negative impact on the number of people choosing to fly to the Bailiwick for their holidays.
Mr Hart said his firm had expected a "modest" increase in charges but is disappointed by the 30% rise being proposed.
The charges are set by the Board of Administration.
"No-one would quibble with the need for security," said Mr Hart.
"But I was disappointed when the "modest" increase was 30%.
"It adds another £50,00 to our bill and I've written to the Board for some transparency on these charges and hope to have a reply in the next few days."
He says regardless of whether the costs are incurred by the airline or as a tax on ticket prices, passengers will end up paying in the long run.
The issue will be debated in the States later this month.
