easyJet has put three new domestic flights from Jersey on sale today to serve demand for domestic travel.

Flights are now on sale at easyJet.com, with fares available from just £14.99.*

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, commented: “We know our customers can’t wait to be reunited with friends and family or have more opportunity to explore the UK so the new routes from Jersey should prove popular and will further strengthen our UK domestic network providing customers with even more choice. 

“We also know it is important to our customers to be reunited with loved ones overseas so we continue to urge the UK government to add more countries to the Green list – which can be done safely – to make this possible.

“We continue to have some of the most flexible policies currently in place so customers can book with confidence and change their plans if they need to, making travel as easy as possible this summer.”

Senator Lyndon Farnham, Jersey’s Minister for Economic Development, Tourism, Sport and Culture, said:  “This year continues to be challenging one for our airline partners. This display of confidence in Jersey by easyJet is extremely welcome and will effectively extend our summer season into October, providing a much needed boost for the Island’s economy, and giving more options for visitors and Islanders’. 

All customers booking flights with easyJet benefit from industry leading flexible booking policies under its ‘Protection Promise’ which means that customers can book now with confidence that if their plans change, so can their booking.

All easyJet customers will now be able to change their flights this summer without a change fee, at any time up to two hours before departure, or request a voucher providing even more last-minute flexibility. Unlike other airlines, there are no restrictions on dates or destination; customers can transfer to any flights currently on sale up to the end of September 2022.

The safety and wellbeing of all customers and crew remains easyJet’s highest priority and the airline continues to have a number of biological safety measures in place onboard in line with guidance from the relevant authorities. This includes daily enhanced cabin disinfection effective in protecting against coronavirus for at least 24 hours and mandatory mask wearing for customers and crew. All easyJet aircraft are already fitted with HEPA filters, similar to those used in hospitals, which filter 99.97% of airborne contaminants in the cabin, including viruses and bacteria.
