Channel Islands airline Blue Island has re-introduced regular flights from Birmingham to Jersey, along with Exeter airport services to Jersey and Manchester.

The Birmingham-Jersey service offers one-way fares from £44.99.

Rob Veron, Blue Islands’ chief executive, said the Birmingham flights will initially operate on four days a week, rising next summer to a daily service to Jersey and with onward connections to Guernsey.

The two revived services from Exeter will initially operate three days a week, and one-way fares start at £49.99.

Blue Islands will increase frequencies from Exeter next summer, with Manchester served three times a day and Jersey once a day.

Veron added: “We will base an aircraft in Exeter from the end of October, employing around 20 pilots, cabin crew and engineers in total.”

Blue Islands is also working with Visit Jersey to promote autumn breaks to the island of Jersey.
