The announcement made earlier today, Thursday 08.04.21 by British Airways Cityflyer of its intention to commence a twice-weekly service between Jersey and London City has been warmly welcomed by both the CEO for Ports of Jersey, Matt Thomas and Deputy Chief Minister/Minister for Economic Development, Tourism, Sport & Culture, Senator Lyndon Farnham.
CEO for Ports of Jersey, Matt Thomas, says, “We are delighted to see the Island once again connected to London City and look forward to working alongside BA Cityflyer. We understand the importance of connectivity to London financial centre, as well as for Islanders wanting easy access to central London, or to take advantage of the many onward connections available.”
Senator Farnham comments, “I am pleased to see the return of the London City service to the Island’s extensive route network planned for summer 2021 and congratulate the Route Development Team at Ports of Jersey for their work to ensure such important connections for the Island are maintained. I believe this announcement further demonstrates the continuing appeal of Jersey as a strong destination among our much-valued airline partners. I am sure the new route will be welcomed not only by our business community but equally by residents looking for another London airport travel option”.
