easyJet will launch two new routes to Jersey from London Luton and Liverpool next spring, with daily flights commencing on 21 April and 31 March respectively. Jersey is a new market for easyJet and the airline predicts the two new routes will be attractive to both business and leisure travellers alike, with close to 200,000 passengers expected to fly on the new services within the first 12 months of operation. easyJet recognises the great potential for further expansion in Jersey and is currently assessing further opportunities for growth in the future.
David Osborne, UK General Manager Commercial, said:
“This is an exciting development for easyJet, not only are we launching services to the island of Jersey for the first time, we are also opening up the market with two new currently un-served routes, connecting it with London Luton and Liverpool, providing direct access to the island, which we expect to be popular with both business and leisure passengers.”
Jersey is the most southerly island of the British Isles and is the largest of the Channel Islands, providing visitors with a kaleidoscope of lush valleys, well-kept fields and an unspoilt coastline. The sea dominates the landscape with stunning views of the surrounding Atlantic Ocean accessible from virtually every point on the island. The 45 miles of coastline also offers a variety of majestic cliffs, sandy beaches and rocky coves.
Heading inland you can explore the 46 miles of green lanes where priority is given to walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Jersey is a perfect destination for a weekend break or a longer holiday, and ideal for family fun at any one of the attractions such as the ‘Maze and Adventure Park’ or ‘Durrell Wildlife Park’. The island is famed for its shopping, such as the St Helier shopping centre, thanks to its low duty on goods.
Jersey is also a popular business destination with numerous banks and businesses taking advantage of Jersey’s generous taxation scheme and its growing conference trade.
