Jersey regains Dublin and Norwich routes for next summer

Channel Islands airline Blue Islands is to serve Jersey from Dublin and Norwich next summer.

Up to six flights a week to Dublin are scheduled from March 27 until October 28, together with two flights a week to Norwich on Tuesdays and Saturdays from May 24 until September 24.

Multiple daily flights to Southampton are also due to rise as the carrier extends regional connectivity.

Chief executive Rob Veron said: “As we continue to emerge from the pandemic, we’re delighted to further enhance our regional route network with new direct flights from Jersey to Dublin and Norwich.

“Services will provide islanders with new convenient services to more exciting destinations for summer 2022, as well as enabling more visitors to discover Jersey next summer.”

He added: “We’ve been viably ramping up our flights across our network with daily flights on most services and multiple daily options to Southampton which will continue to increase.

“With flights available to book for next summer, customers can start planning their trips now, with more services to keep families connected which is so important for our island community.”

Lyndon Farnham, Jersey’s minister for economic development, tourism, sport and culture, said: “It is encouraging that after an absence of over two years that once again Jersey will have direct services to Dublin for the 2022 summer season.

“It is equally encouraging that direct services to Norwich, which has been a long-established service for many years, has been replaced so quickly and shows the confidence in the recovery of our regional connectivity.”

Matt Thomas, Group chief executive for Ports of Jersey, added: “It’s great to see the confidence in these routes from Blue Islands knowing that they are providing island residents and those wishing to holiday in Jersey or visit friends and family the opportunity to connect via these direct services.”
