Jersey Airport guide
Jersey Airport Has a Lengthy
History In 1912 Jean Benoist landed his biplane at the
St. Aubin's Bay. This was a part of a four aircraft race
organized between St. Malo and Jersey. This was the beginning
of the Jersey airport. Then, in the 1920's Imperial Airways
began using the airport where they provided services between
the UK, France, and the Channel Islands. Jersey Airways
then joined the airport in the 1930's.
During these years
the beach was used as the airfield. However, as the
number of flights, as well as the aircraft began to increase
size, a new airfield was commissioned. It was opened
at St. Peter on March 10, 1937. It offered four grass runways.
During the time it was the longest runway offering
yards. The new airport complex also had a central tower
along with two side buildings for people arriving and
departing. It was also designed with the possibility of
the airport in the future. During the 1940's the airport
began to deteriorate.
This happened as a result of
Jersey being cut off from the rest of the Europe while
occupied the area. Later commercial flights started
once again although the airport was in need of a varied
of repairs. In 1952 a 4200 feet tarmac was built.
This replaced the grass strips that had
been used as the landing strips. The airport gained popularity
as flying in the Channel Islands increased as jet
passenger aircraft developed. In 1976 the airfield was
again. A 6000 feet concrete runway was built. The
building at the airport was expanded - doubling the size.
the biggest extension of the building came about
21 years later. It was named John le Fondre Hall. It
space along with better facilities for the passengers.
In two years the airport will celebrate one hundred
years of flying.
