easyJet launched its first flight between Jersey and London Luton in March 2008.

The airline has carried over two million customers to and from Jersey in the last decade and over 600,000 in the last 12 months alone. easyJet’s capacity at Jersey is expected to grow around 9% this summer.

easyJet is also celebrating the first flight between Edinburgh and Jersey this weekend.

easyJet, Europe’s leading airline, is celebrating ten years of flying to and from Jersey, serving customers in Jersey with direct connections to key UK cities and providing customers all around the UK with the opportunity to experience the variety that the island of Jersey has to offer.

easyJet launched the very first flight to Jersey on March 20, 2008 from London Luton and since then the airline’s services to and from the island have continued to grow. Just 10 days after the Luton inauguration the airline launched direct flights from Liverpool and over the last decade has expanded its network offering, adding services between Glasgow (2011), London Southend (2012), Newcastle (2013) and London Gatwick and Belfast in 2014.

In January 2018 the airline put seats on sale on between Jersey and Edinburgh for the very first time, with the inaugural flight due to depart from Edinburgh this Saturday, March 31. The route will operate twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays throughout the summer season, with fares starting from £30.74.*

easyJet operates eight routes and over 132 flights a week during peak summer, flying over 600,000 passengers to and from Jersey across its UK network each year.

On Wednesday, August 19, FedEx pilots, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA), reached a tentative agreement (TA) with FedEx management on an amended collective bargaining agreement. The parties have been actively negotiating since 2011. Discussions started in 2011 under a special interim discussions agreement that had originally been made by both parties to assist in narrowing the field of open items in order to conclude formal bargaining in a timely manner. Formal bargaining began in January 2013 when Section 6 openers were exchanged with management. On October 31, 2014, FedEx management filed for mediation with the National Mediation Board (NMB), and negotiations have been conducted under NMB guidance.

The new agreement is subject to review and finalization of contract language. Terms of the tentative agreement are not being released, as they first must be reviewed and approved by the FedEx ALPA Master Executive Council (MEC). If approved by the FedEx MEC leadership, the TA will be subject to a ratification vote of over 4,000 FedEx pilots. If ratified, the contract would become amendable in 2021.
