Eastern Airways today announced the launch of a Summer 2021 flights to Jersey in the Channel Islands commencing on Saturday 19th June.
The new weekly Saturday flights bookable at easternairways.com will offer 45% more capacity than in recent years given the UK staycation demand to destinations such as the Channel Islands. Operated in partnership with CI Travel Group and Premier Holidays, the service from Eastern Airways home base will complement the Aberdeen service that has operated continuously from the Humber region airport since 1997.
Roger Hage, General Manager, Eastern Airways, said:
“Given the UK staycation growth especially for this summer, we are bringing this popular Channel Island service to Jersey back to Humberside Airport for the summer season. As passenger confidence increases following the UK’s relaxation of restrictions, we want to ensure the right services are being offered. Eastern Airways is all about supporting the regions of the UK, connecting people and places, so commencing Jersey will offer a welcome UK break destination from Humberside. Given recent new leisure additions such as Gibraltar from Birmingham and Southampton and Newquay from Leeds-Bradford, both restoring and adding further services at hubs we already serve are another crucial part of increasing connectivity and aiding economic recovery.”
Deborah Zost, managing director, Humberside Airport said:
“We are very pleased that Eastern Airways has confirmed it will continue the well-established service from its home base at Humberside, to Jersey in the Channel Islands. We look forward to welcoming holidaymakers back to our airport, alongside business travellers who have relied on our ongoing operational support for airline and helicopter service providers throughout the pandemic.
“The return of the Jersey service as travel restrictions continue to ease is a positive sign of recovery for the UK economy.”
Robert Mackenzie, Managing Director, CI Travel Group said:
“We have been associated with operating direct flights to Jersey from the Humberside region for many years. So, it is fantastic to be partnering with Eastern Airways this year to continue the popular service and offering holidays in this beautiful island. We are really looking forward to welcoming our clients back to Jersey from June onwards.”
Eastern Airways “Book and travel with confidence” will give reassurance for all those returning to travel that we have put flexibility and safety at the heart of our commitment. Extensive cleaning measures are in place on-board and throughout all aspects of the airport journey. Should customers be affected by a government travel restriction, their booking can be amended, providing peace of mind.
The UK’s regional airline will operate the service weekly from 19th June until 25th September with fares from Jersey starting from £84.99 including taxes and charges with 15kg checked baggage as standard. Book directly at www.easternairways.com
