Waves canceled all its flights until 01 September 2018 due to a difficult first year of operations. The carrier launched operations in October 2017 from Guernsey.

The airline will re-examine its position in the marketplace during the break in operations, according to its founder Nick Magliocchetti, who admitted the company suffered from a judicial review in 2017 that limited the way seats could be booked.

Recently, the Alderney government said Waves could only operate charters to the island, rejecting the ability for the airline to sell single-seat tickets.
