As of May 2018, passengers flying from Jersey in the Channel Islands will be able to fly to the German city of Hamburg with the low-fare airline Eurowings.
The German carrier already offers flights from Jersey to another German city – Dusseldorf – and the new service linking Jersey with Hamburg will operate once a week on Sundays.
Measuring just 5 miles long and 9 miles wide, Jersey sits in the Bay of St Malo – 19 miles off the French coast and 85 miles south of the English coast. Despite its diminutive size, it is the biggest of the Channel Islands and although it is represented internationally by the UK government, the island is self-governing with its own financial and legal systems, as well as its own courts of law, postal and telecommunications services.
“Eurowings has been a good friend of Jersey over many years. I’m delighted that in 2018 they will be adding Hamburg to their routes to Jersey, in addition to flights from Dusseldorf. We may be a small island but Jersey is an island steeped in thousands of years of history and a countryside and coastline that offers wonderful opportunities to explore,” said Keith Beecham, CEO of Visit Jersey.
