Necessary travel only to/from Jersey - please read carefully

In line with Government of Jersey travel measures in response to COVID-19, Blue Islands will now be operating a special air service between Southampton and Jersey and Gatwick (South) and Jersey for essential travel only. This service, which will remain in place until further notice, will be operated on a non-commercial basis and therefore will be accessible only to passengers who meet the necessary travel criteria outlined below.

Please note that any restrictions upon international inbound passengers to UK airports do not apply to travellers flying from Jersey. Equally, those returning to Jersey from outside of the UK will be able to proceed with their transit journeys once they are in the UK.

  • Essential government workers or contractors travelling to/from Jersey for the purposes of their work. Further guidance on the definitions of essential workers can be found Here
  • Essential private or voluntary sector workers for the purposes of their work. Further guidance on the definitions of essential workers can be found Here
  • Those travelling to/from the UK for medical treatment
  • Those travelling to reach a permanent home in Jersey or the UK, or travel on compassionate grounds
  • Non-British nationals travelling to reach a permanent home outside the UK  
  • Those travelling for educational purposes
