Chief Minister Frank Walker has given an undertaking to cut Airport charges to attract more travellers to Jersey.

And cheaper air fares could be the result – with the possibility that budget carriers such as Easyjet and Ryanair may rekindle interest in flying to and from the Island.

The way the Airport is run is to be completely overhauled, and the Council of Ministers wants to work with airlines to find ways for them to be able to fly more people to and from Jersey and introduce flights to more places.

Senator Walker said that landing fees would fall.

He added: ‘There is an unshakeable destiny on Airport charges that they will come down.

It is not a case of if, but when, and by how much.’ Economic Development Minister Philip Ozouf said: ‘The way the Airport is operated will be much more businesslike in future.’
