- Following the re-opening of Jersey’s borders on 3 July, there were commercial flights operating from London Gatwick, London Heathrow, Southampton, Manchester, London Luton and Newcastle during July, bringing in just over 11,000 arriving passengers, reflecting a decrease in airport arrivals of 88% compared to July 2019.
- The majority of these arrivals were from Gatwick and Heathrow, accounting for 38% and 37% respectively.
