Oxford to Jersey

A weekly ‘summer only’ service from Oxford Airport to Jersey is being introduced by Channel Islands-based Blue Islands.  It is technically a charter by the C.I. Travel Group and will be flown by a 46-seat ATR42 turboprop.   Flights start 10 May through to mid-September

Flights start 10 May through to mid-September. C.I. Travel says that the route will appeal to residents in Oxfordshire, the South Midlands and the north western Home Counties who can now conveniently fly from Oxford without the hassle of going to Birmingham or one of the London airports.  Some five million people live within an hour’s drive of the airport, which is close to the M40, A34, A40 and A44 road networks.

Departure times for the one hour flight are Oxford 09:40 and Jersey 08:00.  Passengers use the airport’s executive travel facilities and very close by car park.

Blue Islands also fly on a daily basis from Jersey to Bournemouth, Bristol, London City, Manchester and Southampton airports.

Oxford Airport is wholly-owned by the Reuben Brothers.  Their investment activities include private equity, real estate ownership and development.  At the end of February 2012 they purchased the London Heliport at London Battersea, the UK’s only CAA licensed heliport.  www.blueislands.com
