Flights to Jersey with Loganair take off from Newcastle International Airport
Yesterday Loganair, the UK’s largest regional airline, began operating flights between Newcastle International Airport and the Channel Island of Jersey.
Responding to popular demand for holidays within the UK and Channel Islands, the airline will be operating flights to Jersey every Monday, Tuesday and Sunday throughout the summer months. All fares include 15kg luggage as standard and 33% discounts for children aged 11 and under.
This marks the fifth destination currently being operated by the airline from the region’s largest airport. Loganair also operate daily flights to Southampton, up to six flights a week to Aberdeen, up to five flights a week to Exeter and up to four flights a week to Newquay.
Despite being just nine miles long and five miles wide, Jersey is the largest Channel Island. Where ever you are on the island, you are only 10 minutes away from the sea - which gives visitors plenty of opportunity to sunbathe on the golden sandy bays of the south or explore the hidden coves and rock-pools of the north and east.
Roads are mostly quiet in Jersey, with many people choosing to explore by bike. Over 350 miles of roads, byways and cycle paths criss-cross the island with something new to discover around every corner.
Leon McQuaid, Head of Aviation Development at Newcastle International Airport said: “We know that the North East travelling public are ready for a well-deserved break this summer and many are looking to explore the UK and Channel Islands.
“We are delighted that Loganair has reacted to this demand and will be operating up to three flights a week to Jersey from the Airport, allowing passengers to be more flexible with their length of trip. Plus, the airline’s new £5 upgrade offer gives an improved luggage allowance of 23kg for those longer stays!
“We have been working hard to ensure the terminal is a safe environment for all and have recently secured accreditation from the International Civil Aviation Organisation for our range of COVID-19 safety measures. As the demand for travel continues to increase we look forward to welcoming more passengers back to the terminal.”
Kay Ryan, Loganair’s chief commercial officer, said: “We’re delighted to be launching our first-ever flights to sunny Jersey from Newcastle, a destination that has proved very popular with holiday-makers looking for a break a little further afield whilst remaining in the Common Travel Area. In response to customer demand, we’ve also announced a new £5 upgrade offer for our FlyFlex fare on all new bookings; giving free seat allocation, an improved luggage allowance of 23kg and extra flexibility in case plans change.”
