Jersey Airport – New development
Work continues on the development of plans to create a new integrated arrivals and departures terminal at Jersey Airport.
Internal work on the demolition of the current arrivals terminal has already started.
Part of the original plan was to upgrade the passenger pier in Phase Two of the project by creating an upper floor linked to the new airside departures lounge with direct access to all departure gates. However, based on the feedback from sessions with interested parties, a decision has been made to bring this upgrade forward. As a result, a revised planning application has been submitted with a decision likely in February 2019.

This will mean the original start date for the build of Phase One; which was to create a first-floor airside departure lounge and new security area, will be delayed.
The Ports of Jersey have said this project remains a key priority for the company.
The initial £42m major works programme set out to focus on the creation of a new integrated two-storey arrivals and departures terminal, a new arrivals area, the relocation of the Airport Rescue & Fire Fighting Service building and improvements to the aircraft stands and taxiways.
The ultimate goal for The Ports of Jersey is to enhance the passenger experience by streamlining the check in/departure procedure. A benefit of these changes will be the overall look of the building, the designs look modern and will allow more natural light to filter through making the terminal bright and airy for passengers.
With regards to advertising, current sites will remain in situ for at least the next couple of years, but there will be new and exciting prime positions for our advertisers once the development has taken shape.
