Half-term travel advice
From Jersey Airport
19th October 2023
Ports of Jersey is reminding departing air passengers to allow longer than usual for their journey through Jersey Airport in the coming days, as the airport will be busy with half-term travellers.
With a large number of flights between tomorrow (20 October) and Monday (23 October), including charter flights to Funchal and Malaga, passengers are advised to leave plenty of time to check in their hold luggage and to clear security.
Work is continuing to install the third new x-ray machine, which will reduce the space for queuing in the Security area. This means the queue will move from Security to Departures near the check-in desks. This will not increase waiting times, it will just move the security queue to the Departures Hall. Welcome Hosts will be on hand to advise passengers of this change.
As the car park is expected to be busy, motorists intending to park their car at the airport while travelling are reminded that there is an overflow car park, which is first on the left as you drive into the airport. It works in the same way as the long-stay car park. And for those fetching friends or family members, it is free to park in the long-stay car park for 30 minutes.
Journeys to the airport might be affected by resurfacing work on the westbound carriageway of the Esplanade during half term. Details are on the Government’s website – Esplanade carriageway reconstruction work (gov.je)
Passengers who need to book special assistance for their journey should contact their airline before travelling to the Airport. All passengers should check baggage rules with their airline and security regulations with any airports they will be using on their journey.
Information about the system at Jersey Airport, and how to prepare yourself for Security, is available online.
