Aviation in the English Channel: History of Jersey Airport

Since the airport’s opening in 1937, there has been regular air traffic to and from Jersey. To date, Jersey Airport, despite its small size, has become one of the most important air traffic hubs in Europe. Only a few years ago, a new control building and a new air traffic tower were built to expand the airport’s capacity and enable it to greater assist with air traffic across the English Channel. The airport’s various runways and landing strips have also been rebuilt and expanded over the decades since its construction. Jersey JER Airport’s original grass landing strips were supplemented and eventually replaced by several concrete and asphalt runways during the Second World War. After the war, the airport’s civil authorities reduced the number of landing strips and chose to create one large, single runway for all air traffic to the island. This single runway is still in use today. In 2008 and 2009, the runway was completely redesigned, in order to meet modern flight processing requirements. Despite its size, Jersey Airport offers a range of exclusive services to passengers travelling by private jet charter to or from Jersey.
