Jersey Airport (IATA: JER, ICAO: EGJJ) is located in the parish of Saint Peter, 4 NM (7.4 km; 4.6 mi) west northwest of Saint Helier in Jersey, one of the British Crown Dependencies in the Channel Islands.

History

Air service to Jersey before 1937 consisted of biplane airliners and some seaplanes landing on the beach at Saint Aubin's Bay. Jersey Airways and Imperial Airways were among those who operated to the island before the Second World War, but conditions were difficult as timetables were governed by tides. It was also difficult to prevent members of the public from walking across the landing area, and any aircraft which had mechanical problems had to be dragged up the slipways until the tide receded.

The States of Jersey decided to build an airport which opened on 10 March 1937 with four grass runways, the longest of 2,940 ft (896 m) with a concrete centreline. Concrete taxiways were added during the World War II occupation by the Luftwaffe — they also built hangars, one of which is still in existence. A 4,200 ft (1,280 m) tarmac runway was opened in 1952 and the grass strips were closed. A feature of the airport in the 1950s was the traffic control system — traffic-lights were in place to prevent vehicles using the road from Les Quennevais to the Airport when planes were being moved to or from the hangar used by B.E.A.

The runway was lengthened several times over the years, reaching its current length in 1976. Additional taxiways were added several years later to improve access to the one end of the runway. However, due to its restricted length, in October 2007 Thomsonfly announced the removal of some services as it introduces the larger Boeing 737-800 to its fleet.

There are approximately 64,000 aircraft movements and 1.5 million passengers annually at the airport based on 2009 statistics.

Terminal

The 1937 terminal was designed with a control tower between the arrivals and departures areas. The terminal was extended in 1976. A new terminal adjoining the existing terminal was opened in 1997. A new Air Traffic control tower is due for completion during late 2009 and the departures hall is being developed to provide better services for passengers.
