Flights from Exeter airport to Manchester and Jersey restart

Exeter Airport welcomes the return of flights to Manchester and Jersey from today, both served by Blue Islands.

Services to Manchester and Jersey were core to the airport over a number of years, attracting thousands of regular travellers from the South West, serving business and leisure passengers.

Rob Veron, Blue Islands CEO said: “We are very pleased to reinstate two very popular routes from Exeter. The flights will initially operate three days a week, and for next summer we will increase frequencies with Manchester served three times a day and Jersey once a day.

“The initial flights in September and October will use aircraft from the Channel Islands. However, as previously announced we will base an aircraft in Exeter from the end of October, employing around twenty pilots, cabin crew and engineers in total.”
