The Channel Islands based Blue Islands has announced a new route from Jersey to Dublin starting in March 2022. The airline had previously announced this route for 2020 and then again for March 2021 but the delay in lifting the travel restrictions from the pandemic caused postponements.

The flight will depart from Jersey at 10.50, arrive in Dublin at 12.25 and the return flight will leave Dublin at 13.05 and arrive back in Jersey at 14.40. Blue Islands also announced a new service from Jersey to Norwich for next summer with a twice-weekly service.
