Fly safe

We’re excited to welcome you to Jersey Airport again.

From Monday 7 February 2022, all requirements under the Safer Travel Policy were suspended. For passengers that means:

  • no need to complete pre-travel registration
  • no need to undergo testing or isolate upon arrival

For the most up to date travel advice from the Government of Jersey, refer to the latest Government of Jersey updates.

Wearing of face masks and exemption cards

The wearing of face masks is no longer compulsory for anyone accessing our terminals, including staff. However, some airlines may still require anyone over the age of 6-years to wear masks once onboard and failure to do so without proven reason could result in the airline refusing you to travel.

Therefore, we recommend you contact your airline before travelling to the airport to verify its policy on the wearing of face masks

Passengers who have a valid medical certificate can collect a free ‘exempt from wearing face mask’ identification card for use onboard the aircraft, which is available to collect from the Customer Relations Desk in the Departures’ Terminal at Jersey Airport. However, a valid medical certificate must be presented at the time before a pass can be given.

Should you have any questions or concerns, contact the Help Desk by emailing coronavirushelpline@gov.je or telephone (freephone) 0800 735 5566

Some helpful tips

Wherever possible, please check-in for your flight online and print your boarding pass before travelling to the airport. If this isn’t possible you can arrange to do this when you arrive at the airport

If you require special assistance at the airport or onboard your flight, you must contact your airline at least 48 hours before you travel to ensure services are available to you. These services are provided to you by the airline’s appointed ground agent and not the airport.

Please allow sufficient time for your journey through the airport. Failure to arrive at your boarding gate on time could result in the airline refusing you to travel.

Safety and wellbeing

The safety and wellbeing of our staff, business partners and airport users remains a priority for Ports of Jersey. We continue to follow the guidelines provided by Government of Jersey’s Health Department relating to Coronavirus (COVID-19).

We have developed a range of procedures and guidance at Jersey Airport to support the continuing health and safety of customers and staff. These have been developed based on advice from across the industry and are in line with what is being implemented by other airports, airlines and ferry operators.

Free parking for up to 30-minutes is available in the main car park opposite the Departures’ Terminal. Usual tariffs apply for the car park in front of Arrivals’ Terminal.
