Amanda Burns, CEO of Visit Jersey, said: “We believe Jersey is ideally placed as a staycation destination for the UK holidaymaker keen to travel and make up for lost time. The Island is within easy reach of the mainland and appeals to visitors who want the feeling of getting away but at the same time staying closer to home. The arrival of new routes served by Jet2.com and Jet2holidays is incredibly exciting and we are delighted to welcome visitors from their new departure hubs across the UK.” 

Matt Thomas, Chief Executive Officer for Ports of Jersey, said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming Jet2.com and Jet2holidays back to Jersey and reconnecting with the Island this summer; not only with the relaunch of its established service to Leeds but with the five new routes they will also be operating. I have no doubt that their services will prove popular with local residents wishing to finally catch up with much missed family and friends but also the opportunities it will allow for those wishing to holiday in Jersey this summer.”
