Welcome to the curiously Brit…(ish) island of Jersey. A place that’s familiar, yet ever so slightly exotic and one of the most accessible destinations in the world right now.
Access to Jersey has never been easier, with Jet2, Easyjet and British Airways running regular flights from the UK and daily ferries. New for 2022, BA Cityflyer will operate a twice-weekly service between the island and London City Airport starting 20 June through to 2 September. Blue Islands has also confirmed two new seasonal routes directly connecting Dublin and Norwich, starting 28 March and 24 May respectively.
This idyllic, nine-by-five-mile island is the ideal getaway. A short hop from over 20 UK airports, or an easy ferry ride from Poole or Portsmouth, Jersey has plenty in store whether your client is a seasoned traveller or if it’s their first time stepping onto our shores. With intriguing landscapes, golden sandy beaches, well preserved medieval castles and restaurants bursting with unique Jersey produce there’s something for everyone.
After two summers of holidaying at home, consumer research has highlighted that people in the UK are craving somewhere different to visit, with new and exciting experiences but with the reassurance of being closer to home. The answer - Jersey! Our latest campaign aims to encourage prospective visitors to think differently about Jersey.
From its rich history and heritage to its untouched landscapes and unique island culture there has never been a better time to explore. For more information, visit https://business.jersey.com/index.php/jersey-curiously-british-0
