Flights from Stansted to Jersey take around four hours, with a connecting flight from Guernsey required. The stopover should be somewhere around the three hour mark, although it may be less, while late morning and early afternoon flights are usually most prevalent.
Jersey is most popular during summer thanks to its quaint seaside towns, although springtime can be a great time to hike among the island’s lush countryside, and the golden hues of autumn are equally attractive.
The airport lies less than five miles to the northwest of Saint Helier, the island’s capital and largest town. The drive between the two should take around 15 minutes, following the scenic A1 and A2 coastal roads. Taxis cost about £12 for this journey, with a designated pick up point directly in front of the Arrivals Terminal.
Public buses also run from the front of the Arrivals Terminal. The number 15 takes around 30 minutes to reach Liberation Station in Saint Helier, and when returning to the airport this service drops passengers off directly in front of the Departures Terminal.
For those wishing to explore Jersey in their own time, a car hire may prove to be ideal. Avis, Europcar and Hertz all operate from the airport.
