A new summer air service between the Channel Islands and Bournemouth is due to take off next year.

Ports of Jersey says the 45 minute link will operate on Monday, Friday and Saturday between April and September.

The service will be provided by airline Loganair, which also plans to launch a weekly Saturday service between Bournemouth and Guernsey in summer 2019.

Over the past 18 months we have worked closely with Loganair to establish further opportunities to operate to and from the Island.

The airline already operates a successful summer service between Jersey and Norwich and has already increased its capacity on this service due to passenger demand.

The introduction of a Bournemouth service, provides an additional route to our already extensive UK route network, giving both residents and visitors an alternative travel option from the south coast.
