Airport cash point returns

A cash point has been put back in the arrivals hall at Jersey Airport.

Bosses have been petitioning operators for to years to try and get an ATM reinstalled at the airport.

However, banks said it wasn’t "financially viable" because of the low number of transactions.

Ports of Jersey have decided to operate the service itself after public consultation.

Working closely with Jersey Post, they have to fit a machine that will dispense Jersey notes.

Despite many approaches, we were unable to source an alternative external operator for the service but Ports of Jersey strongly believes that the provision of a cash facility in a public area of the terminal is import to our customers so we have taken the decision to operate this service ourselves.

– Paul Holley, Group Commercial Manager for Ports of Jersey

The news comes on the 50th anniversary since the first cash machine appeared in the UK.

The Ports have also invested in some new baggage trolleys for the harbour and airport – said to be more lightweight.

A number of the old trolleys are now being upcycled for use behind the scenes by business partners.
