Approval granted for Dublin-Jersey flights

Flights between Jersey and Dublin are to operate this summer after the Irish Department for Transport gave the green light for the route.

Channel Islands carrier Blue Islands pans to run up to six flights a week from the Irish capital.

Flights are due to start on May 19 following the official approval.

Blue Islands chief executive Rob Veron said: “We are excited to be able to fully launch our Jersey-Dublin service and would like to thank all our customers for their understanding and patience while the licensing issues were resolved.

“Thanks to the Channel Islands, Irish and UK governments working to ensure the route is able to operate, we look forward to providing Jersey residents, and visitors to our island, our Dublin service this summer.”

He added: “We are proud to play our role in sustainably developing Jersey’s connectivity and eagerly anticipate a busy summer building our regional route network, and of course welcoming many visitors to discover Jersey.”
