Allowing us to continue to offer our customers in Norfolk fabulous short breaks and holidays to the beautiful island of Jersey. With a range of 3 to 5* hotels and guest houses plus self-catering and even campervans there really is something for everyone.”

Richard Pace, Managing Director of Norwich Airport, said: “Jersey is a beautiful location and we’re delighted that Blue Islands is providing this twice-weekly link from Norwich Airport, creating new opportunities for short breaks, weekend escapes and the ever popular 10 and 11 night holiday durations.  After being a weekly service for several years, this added flexibility for people to visit Jersey or island hop in the Channel Islands from their local airport is very exciting.”
