February 2017 saw persistent fog at Jersey airport with many people having to travel by sea instead of air. The same month in 2018 saw very little fog disruption, however rough seas and technical difficulties caused disruption to ferry services in and out of the island.
- Jersey Airport saw a 5% annual increase in arrivals, with each of the three highest volume routes (Gatwick, Southampton and Liverpool) all up on 2017
- Arrivals at the Harbour fell by 26% compared with a year before, with this being entirely down to a reduction in arrivals from St Malo – UK and Guernsey routes all saw higher volumes
- In total, passenger arrivals by Air and Sea in February 2018 were unchanged with a year before
- Looking at the first two months of 2018 Air arrivals are up 4.7% while Sea arrivals have fallen by 24%, delivering an overall picture of no change compared with the first two months of 2017
- During January and February Air accounted for 88% of all passenger arrivals, up from 85% for the equivalent period of last year
