Services will provide islanders with new convenient services to more exciting destinations for summer 2022, as well as enabling more visitors to discover Jersey next summer.”

Blue Islands operates a fleet of four ATR 72-500 aircraft, and one ATR 42-320. The aircraft operate a regional route network around the United Kingdom, centered around Jersey. Additionally, Blue Islands has a partnership with Loganair on flights from Southampton to Scotland.

Matt Thomas, Group CEO for Ports of Jersey said, “We are delighted that Blue Islands are flying to Dublin and Norwich next summer. It’s great to see the confidence in these routes from Blue Islands knowing that they are providing Island residents and those wishing to holiday in Jersey or visit friends and family the opportunity to connect via these direct services.”

Senator Lyndon Farnham, Minister for Economic Development, Tourism, Sport and Culture, said, “It is encouraging that after an absence of over two years that once again Jersey will have direct services to Dublin for the 2022 summer season. It is equally encouraging that direct services to Norwich, which has been a long-established service for many years, has been replaced so quickly and shows the confidence in the recovery of our regional connectivity.”
