Ports of Jersey has today announced plans to create an integrated arrivals and departure terminal at Jersey Airport.
This will see an extension to the existing departures terminal with the construction of a mezzanine floor to create a larger central security search and preparation area and airside departures lounge. The new arrivals facility, including baggage reclaim together with customs and immigration will be created on the ground floor of the existing terminal, which is where the current airside departures lounge is located.
• Subject to planning approval, work is due to start in autumn 2018 and is likely to take up to three years to complete;
• As part of the project, the arrivals building, a small part of which was constructed in 1937, will also be removed as it impacts on the safety and operational capabilities of the airport;
• Regulatory conditions imposed on the airport in relation to the removal of these obstacles mean this work is compulsory for the airport to retain its current rating.
• In line with all of its projects, the construction is being entirely funded by Ports of Jersey, from its own commercial returns with no government financial support.
