Statement from ED Minister - Visit Jersey Exit Survey Analysis

Sep 04, 2019

Senator Lyndon Farnham has issued the following statement, in response to Visit Jersey’s exit survey analysis for January-June 2019:

“I am pleased to see a continuing increase in the number of visitors coming to Jersey. From January to June 327,000 visitors came to the island - an increase of 11% - and they spent an estimated £111 million, which was 12% up.

“This growth in the first half of the year was mainly driven by people visiting from the UK and Germany, both of which are up 15% on the same period last year. We have also seen growth from a number of UK air routes, like London Southend, Gatwick and Aberdeen. However some markets, such as France, are behind where they were at this point last year.

“This positive position is the result of all the hard work of many in the tourism sector. It’s crucial that we keep promoting all the great reasons for visiting our Island all year-round.”
