From mid-May through to September, Jet2.com will operate flights and holidays to Jersey from Birmingham, East Midlands, Manchester, Newcastle and London Stansted Airports. As the airline already operates from Leeds Bradford Airport, the additional routes give holidaymakers even greater choice and flexibility when it comes to exploring the largest of the Channel Islands next summer.
The expansion of the Jersey programme means over 30,000 seats on sale to the island. With great choice and flexibility available, and the flight time being just over one hour, holidaymakers can enjoy either a long weekend, or a longer break.
Sitting between Britain and France, just a short distance from the UK, Jersey offers aquamarine waters and vast stretches of white sand beaches. At just nine miles by five miles, Jersey is known as the “little island with the big spirit” and its warm and sunny climate is ideal for those looking to pursue a range of outdoor activities such as hiking, surfing, kayaking and diving. Add to that castles, forts, museums, cobbled streets and rolling hills, Jersey offers holidaymakers everything they need for the perfect getaway.

Birmingham – weekly Saturday services from 22nd May to 25th September 2021. This is in addition to a new route to Amsterdam, announced today, with twice weekly services every Friday and Monday from 30th April to 29th October 2021.
