Increased access for German visitors

It is welcome news that Jersey will be accessible to more German visitors next year, with the expansion of flight capacities from Germany. After a high and increasing demand for flights to Jersey over the last few years, key airlines have now announced the expansion of their flight capacities by more than 60%, resulting in the island break becoming easier to reach for German visitors.

Furthermore the German tour operator TUI Wolters Reisen is offering the route Dusseldorf to Jersey for the first time as a full charter service operated by Flybe from 28 April until 22 September (weekly on Saturdays). The new flight will depart Hamburg at 06:00 and land in Jersey at 07:00.

Furthermore, in early February Eurowings confirmed a fourth direct flight from Germany to Jersey.  Starting from 28 April onwards non-stop fights will commence from Berlin-Tegel to the island. With this new additional flight connection the total seat capacity increases to 15,276 passengers (on direct air links only) which is an increase in capacity by 84.2% compared to last year.

“Eurowings has been a good friend of Jersey over many years and we are delighted that in 2018 they will be adding Hamburg to their routes to Jersey, in addition to flights from Dusseldorf. With this new service and the increased capacity from Germany to Jersey next year this is a very positive signal and we are looking forward to an increasing number of German visitors next year.” Keith Beecham, CEO of Visit Jersey
