Jersey is a popular route for West Midlands air travellers, who have enjoyed flying to the picturesque Island with its French influence, since 1985.

Rob Veron, Blue Islands CEO said: “We are very pleased to reinstate the very popular route from Birmingham. The flights will initially operate four days a week, and for next summer we will increase frequencies with a daily service to Jersey and convenient onward connections to Guernsey.”

Tom Screen, Aviation Director of Birmingham Airport said: “Jersey is an important route for the Midlands and we are delighted that Blue Islands now operates direct flights to the island. The route has been unserved for a period of time but we know there is huge demand for this service from our customers to access the Channel Islands.”

Jersey is a small Island with a big spirit, renowned for its attractive bays and award winning, clean beaches. Offering an array of watersports, varied walks and cycle paths, from heritage trails to country ambles, the vibrancy of the capital St Helier, heritage attractions and fine, locally sourced cuisine with the freshest ingredients from the land and sea, Jersey has something for every visitor.

Blue Islands is working with Visit Jersey to promote late summer/autumn breaks to Jersey.
