Works to start on enhancing Central Security Layout

From Jersey Airport
3rd February 2022

Work is due to start w/c Monday 07.02.22 on reconfiguring the existing security search area at Jersey Airport as part of Ports of Jersey’s commitment to enhancing the overall passenger journey experience.

The size of the central search area will increase from its current 32 m2 to a revised layout of circa 115m2 to maximise space and eventually provide more passenger prep areas. The revised layout will see a relocation of the boarding pass desk and passenger entry into central security.

The work will be carried out in-house by the Group Technical Services Team from Ports of Jersey and is expected to take up to nine days to complete. Departing passengers travelling through Jersey Airport will not be greatly impacted by the works programme and the check-in area and airside lounge facilities will be unaffected. However, there is likely to be some visual impact due to hoarding in place and some temporary alteration to accessing central security. Directional signage will be put in place to assist passengers.

This is the first stage of an ongoing process to enhance the provision of security services and facilities at Jersey Airport, which has included the successful recruitment and training of additional security agents. In due course a review will take place of our current technology in line with regulatory requirements as well as an increase in the prep and packing area.

On behalf of Ports of Jersey, Airport Director, Robin MacRae, explains, “The comfort, safety and security of airport users is a priority and we recognise some of the issues faced when traveling through security, especially during busy times. Security remains an essential part of the journey and we are committed to enhancing our services to ensure that the facilities we provide make it a smoother process for our passengers”.
