Inbound and Outbound flights between UK and Channel Islands currently require a 12 hour pre-notification advice to Customs/Immigration/Special Branch when arriving/departing from non-designated airports in UK. Whereas flights from UK to rest of EU require no advance notification on departure and only 4 hours on arrival.

This regulation is justified supposedly due to the enhanced terrorist risks on flights to/from Channel Islands but is clearly absurd and rules should be made the same as rest of EU.  

Why is this idea important?

This would save inconvenient flight delays and unnecessary Police/Immigration/Customs time and improve business efficiency for the many businesses operating between UK and Channel Islands.
