New Oxford to Jersey flights are being operated by Air Southwest for 2009 with Jersey-based C.I. Travel Group, it has been announced.

Linking the historic University City with the Channel Islands for the first time, the service will operate every Saturday between 11 July and 12 September 2009 from Oxford Airport, located just seven miles from Oxford city centre.

Operated by Air Southwest, using a 50 seat Bombardier aircraft, the route will be sold exclusively by C.I. Travel Group’s well established brands including Airways Holidays, Discover Jersey and Channel Islands Travel Service. The route will also be available to Jersey hoteliers wanting to offer their own guests direct flights to the island.

Air Southwest deputy chief executive Mike Coombes said: “We are very pleased to be working with C.I. Travel Group in launching these new flights from Oxford to Jersey. C.I. Travel offer a great range of holidays on the beautiful island of Jersey, and the new flights direct from Oxford will mean it’s quick and convenient to get there.”

Robert Mackenzie, managing director of C.I. Travel Group added: “We are delighted to have concluded negotiations for the launch of a new service from Oxford in the summer of 2009. With many more UK holiday-takers deserting the Euro-zone in favour of a holiday closer to home, we believe that this new route will prove to be popular with both new and existing clients in the Oxford area.”

David de Carteret, Director of Jersey Tourism, welcomed the announcement of the new service: “This initiative is welcomed by everyone in Jersey’s tourism industry and adds yet another route to the network to the island. We look forward to working together to secure a successful first year of operation.”
