Fly to Jersey from StanstedA little bit of Europe in the British Isles
Would you like to feel as if you're holidaying on the Continent without leaving the British Isles?
Then beautiful Jersey is the destination for you - and from May 1 you'll be able to fly there from Stansted airport.
Aurigny Air Services will be running daily flights to and from the largest of the Channel Islands, where the TV series Bergerac was filmed in the 1980s.
The flights are expected to be very popular with British tourists because the pound is currently weak against the euro.
Aurigny's commercial director, Malcolm Coupar, said: "The Channel Islands have some of the best beaches and restaurants in the British Isles.
"More travellers are starting to recognise that you can experience a European-style destination without leaving the British Isles.
"We also hope this new route will strengthen connections for businessmen and women who need to travel to Jersey as it is an extremely important offshore financial centre."
From Monday to Saturday, flights will leave Stansted at 13:50, arriving in Jersey at 15:05. Return flights will leave Jersey at 15:35, arriving at Stansted at 16:50.
On Sundays, outgoing flights will leave Stansted at 12:40, arriving in Jersey at 13:55. Return flights will leave Jersey at 14:25 and arrive at Stansted at 15:40.
Aurigny already runs flights from Stansted to Guernsey and was voted third best short haul airline in a survey with consumer magazine Which? last year.
Nick Barton, Stansted airport's commercial and development director, said: "We are delighted to welcome the return of a direct link to Jersey from Stansted.
"It has always been an extremely popular connection with business and leisure passengers alike."
