"We're committed to providing even more choice for our customers in Jersey and Scotland and the addition of this new route will help us to deliver long term, sustainable growth, providing passengers with a greater range of destinations, all with low fares and great service."

On behalf of Ports of Jersey, Myra Shacklady, who oversees the company's route development programme, said:
"This is great news to start 2018, which is a very significant year for both easyJet, Jersey Airport and Visit Jersey as it marks the 10th anniversary since the airline first started services in and out of the Island. The introduction of its eighth service I believe, clearly demonstrates easyJet's continuing commitment and confidence in Jersey."
