There are two paved airports in the Bailiwick (Guernsey Airport and Alderney Airport), and 3 miles (5 km) of railways in Alderney. The States of Guernsey wholly own their own airline Aurigny Air Services. The decision to purchase the airline was made to protect important airlinks to and from the island and the sale was completed on 15 May 2003. It was announced that the States would sell Aurigny to a rival Channel Islands' airline, Blue Islands, in July 2010, but the talks fell through in September 2010 due to uncertainty as to whether the Gatwick slots could be guaranteed.
Alderney airport is 'Light Aviation Friendly' and open seven days a week. The airport hosts annual Island Air Races, held during September. The races are run jointly by the Alderney Flying Club and the Royal Aero Club, with the results counting towards the British Air Racing Campionships.
