Jersey gains trio of summer regional flights

A trio of regional routes to Jersey have opened for the summer season.

Channel Islands carrier Blue Islands has started flying between Norwich and Jersey.

The new route came as the airline said the wearing of face masks would now be optional on all flights.

The Jersey service from Norwich will operate on Saturdays and Tuesdays until September 24.

Premier Holidays is working with Blue Islands on the Norwich-Jersey service.

Director Mark Godfrey said: “By offering a wide selection of competitively priced holidays to Jersey including short breaks, luxury gourmet stays, traditional package holidays, coach groups and self-catering options, Premier Holidays have secured strong forward sales for the 2022 season.”

Blue Islands chief executive Rob Veron said: “Our new Norwich service both enhances connectivity for Jersey residents whilst providing another valuable access point for inbound visitors to enjoy our beautiful island this summer.”

At the same time Eastern Airways launched summer Saturday services to Jersey from both Humberside and Teesside airports.

General manager Roger Hage said: “Given the UK staycation growth remains the focus for many into 2022, we have extended the length of the operating season to Jersey from both Humberside and Teesside airports in conjunction with our primary partners of C I Travel Group and Premier Travel.”
