Next phase of work on airport car park
From Jersey Airport
19th May 2023
Work starts next week (Monday 22 May) to move to a new parking payment system at Jersey Airport. Some areas of the long stay car park will be cordoned off for 2-3 weeks to allow the work to take place.
This is the next phase of the parking reconfiguration, which has been designed to accommodate the increasing number of passengers who have been using the facilities since parking promotions were introduced last year. The changes will provide an extra 120 spaces.
Hire cars have now been relocated to a new area in the staff car park and overflow spaces for passengers are available in the staff car park. Extra exit points are being installed in both the Arrivals and long stay car parks, which will allow motorists a faster departure during busy periods.
Later in the year a new online system will be introduced, which will allow pre-booking and payment. This will also enable Ports of Jersey to discount parking for people who book in advance, and will guarantee a space for those who pre-book.
Innovation Manager, Marc Clayson, said: “Since introducing our parking promotions we have noticed that there are sometimes not enough spaces to satisfy demand, so we have been making changes to provide more spaces for passengers who want to park at the airport while they travel.
“Next week we will be cordoning off some areas of the long stay car park to allow us to move from the existing payment system to a new one. Motorists will need to follow the routes highlighted by temporary signage.
“We apologise for the disruption while we transition to the new system and increase the number of spaces available. Later in the year the new online system will allow us to offer off-peak fees, and discounts for pre-booking, which we hope will better serve our customers.”
A summer parking promotion will be launched soon and will remain in place until the online system goes live.
