Jersey Airport prepares for the busy Easter ‘get-away’ 2022

From Jersey Airport
12th April 2022

Ports of Jersey is reminding departing air passengers to allow longer than usual for their journey through Jersey Airport over the coming days as the busy ‘Easter Get-Away’ begins.

Between Thursday 14 and Monday 18 April 2022, more than 20,000 passengers are expected to travel in and out of the Airport. With a high number of flights, many departing within minutes of each other, this can create larger than usual volumes of passengers and inevitable queues; therefore, sufficient time should be allowed for passengers checking in hold luggage and clearing central security.

Passengers who need to book special assistance with their journey must contact their airline prior to travelling to the Airport. Similarly, passengers should refer to their airline directly in relation to baggage and weight restrictions as well as its individual policy on the wearing of face masks once onboard as they can differ from one airline to another. As always, flight status updates will be available to view online  – arrivals and departures

Chocolate Easter Eggs are permitted in hand luggage – but will be subject to security screening and shouldn’t contain liquids!
