As follows is a statement from Chief Commercial Officer for Ports of Jersey, Jonathan Crick, in relation to recent reports referring to British Airways and easyJet operations to Jersey Airport in summer 2020:
“Both British Airways and easyJet have continued to advertise flights to Jersey ever since first going on sale for 2020, many months before the current Coronavirus pandemic, and their longstanding commitment to the Jersey market has never been in any doubt.
Since the temporary suspension of services during lockdown, both airlines have maintained their wish to resume flying as soon as border controls are lifted, and passengers are no longer required to self-isolate for 14-days. Flight bookings can be made for all future dates up to the middle of 2021 and any changes that are needed for immediately upcoming dates, due to continued border restrictions, are being made by the airlines as necessary.
All our airline partners look forward to the resumption of normal services as soon as it is safe to do so and customer demand returns.
On Wednesday 17 June, British Airways decided that some Jersey flights still planned for July 2020, in anticipation of a relaxation of border controls, will operate out of its Heathrow base for operational reasons, as it gradually builds up its operations from the London area. This is only a temporary measure before the Jersey Gatwick service is resumed and any passengers who may be affected will be contacted directly by the airline.”
