Airline expands fleet of planes
Rockhopper hopes to add a new Alderney to Southampton route
A Channel Islands airline is expanding its fleet of aircraft for what it expects to be its busiest summer ever.

Rockhopper says it is adding another Trislander to cope with growing passenger numbers.

Visitor statistics for 2004 show an increase in the number of air passengers in the Bailiwick.

This has prompted the Alderney-based airline to increase the size of its fleet to five Trislanders, with a sixth planned before the autumn.

Rockhopper has also applied to add a route between Alderney and Southampton to its network, with a hearing for the application expected in April.
