Jet2.com adds Jersey to its destinations from Stansted Airport
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have announced a new service from Stansted Airport to Jersey for four months in summer 2021.
Two weekly flights to the largest of the Channel Islands will operate on Tuesdays and Saturdays from May 22 to September 25. More than 6,000 seats will be available on 36 flights throughout the season.
Just over an hour away by air and sitting between Britain and France, Jersey has stretches of white sandy beaches, rolling hills, cobbled streets, castles, forts and museums for visitors to enjoy.
Known as the "little island with the big spirit", it also offers activities such as hiking, surfing, kayaking and diving for an energetic break.
The addition of Jersey means that Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have over 45 destinations across Europe, the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands on sale from Stansted for summer 2021.
Jet2 chief executive Steve Heapy said: "With over 30 flights departing from the base next summer in response to this demand, there are lots of opportunities for customers in the region to enjoy a holiday in Jersey. On top of that, there are fantastic deals to be had, which means that holidaymakers have plenty of choice and flexibility when it comes to visiting this stunning island."
The airline has also added three weekly services from Newcastle to Jersey.
Matt Thomas, chief executive of Ports of Jersey, said: "The addition of the five new routes, on top of our established programme from Leeds Bradford, makes our beautiful island available to many more holidaymakers."
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have launched a five-star Defaqto rated insurance product which includes added Covid-19 cover for cancellations and medical claims abroad, as well as cover for travel to destinations where the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) advises against all but essential travel as a result of the pandemic.
