Alderney Airport Airport codes|ACI|EGJA is the only airport in the island of Alderney. Built in 1938, Alderney Airport was the first airport in the Channel Islands. It is the closest Channel Island airport to the South coast of England and the coast of France and its facilities include a hangar, the Airport Fire Station and low cost, duty-free and tax-free Avgas refuelling.

Runways

Alderney is unique amongst Channel Islands airports, in having three operational runways. The main runway, 08/26 is 880 metres long and is mainly asphalt. The two secondary runways are both grass. 14/32 being 732 metres long, with 03/21 having a length of 497 metres. The main runway is equipped with low intensity lighting, with portable lighting being available on runway 14/32. The approach and runway lights were replaced in 2006 by I.C. Tugby, a local building contracter.

Development

A Dutch company who have bought Fort Tourgis, a near by disused fort to turn it into a hotel, are proposing to make the airport buildings bigger and they want to extend runways.
