easyJet launch new route between Jersey and Amsterdam

Publish date: 07 Dec 2022

Ports of Jersey and easyJet have announced the launch of a new route between Jersey and Amsterdam. This will be the first international route that easyJet have operated to and from Jersey, and it will run twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays from April 2023.

This new route is a major milestone for Jersey’s connectivity as this service conveniently connects with more than 250 routes, making Jersey easily accessible to international visitors, but also providing direct access for departing islanders to the wonderful city of Amsterdam and beyond. Passengers will be able to connect onwards via Amsterdam to the likes of Dubai and Oslo through easyJet’s “Worldwide” partnership with airlines including Etihad and Icelandair.

A new 5-year agreement between easyJet and Ports of Jersey is confirmed and in addition to the route announcement of Amsterdam, this is accompanied by the return of a service to Edinburgh, the introduction of an overnight-based aircraft, providing early morning London Gatwick services, and a 20% uplift in easyJet’s capacity at Jersey Airport.

Ports of Jersey’s Chief Executive, Matt Thomas, has welcomed the news, saying: “We are thrilled with this new 5-year agreement, which represents a major commitment from easyJet, with approximately 800,000 passengers projected in 2023, 20% more than before the pandemic”.

The island’s Economic Development Minister Kirsten Morel, responsible for tourism and culture in Jersey, says: “This is a fantastic announcement, providing more travel options for islanders and visitors. Jersey needs an environment that supports a sustainable, vibrant economy, and a growing network of European transport connections will improve resilience, expand choice for consumers, and facilitate new opportunities for business.

“Today’s announcement is another sign of confidence in Jersey as an attractive destination and will be welcomed by islanders. The enhanced connectivity will encourage investment and support our efforts to create an attractive and dynamic retail and tourism sector.”

Seats are now on sale and can be booked here.
