Flybe flights to Jersey

Post update – unfortunately Flybe no longer fly to Jersey.

Flybe is Europe’s largest regional airline carrier. Although Jersey is one of the smallest airports they service, Flybe flies to Jersey from a huge selection of UK and international airports: Aberdeen, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Durham Tees Valley, East Midlands, Exeter, Geneva, Guernsey, Inverness, London City, Manchester, Newquay, Southampton and Zurich. Costs are kept low, by allowing only one small hand luggage and handbag as carry-on, and charging extra for any checked baggage. This allows more flights to take off each day, and for more customers to be connected to less-frequented destinations. Flights are generally short, and have an excellent standard of service, with Flybe being recognised as the number one airline for on-time flights in January 2018.

Flybe, The Low Cost Airline

Flybe was actually originally called ‘Jersey European Airways’ when it was founded in 1979. It has since changed to ‘British European’ in 2000, and then later onto the name it has today in 2002.

Flybe has such frequent flights that for last-minute travel, chances are you’ll be able to find a flight on the day you need to leave. The Flybe planes that service Jersey are operated by the franchise partners, Eastern Airways and Blue Islands. Blue Islands planes fly everyday between UK airports Birmingham, East Midlands, Guernsey and Southampton. Flights to London City, Exeter and Bristol run six days a week so there is no shortage in transport to the island.
