AROUND 3,200 more passengers arrived in Jersey by air during the recent half-term period compared to the same time last year, according to figures from Ports of Jersey.
A total of 25,636 people passed through arrivals during the the one-week period.
Alan Donald, group marketing and communications manager for Ports of Jersey, described the figures as very encouraging.
Keith Beecham, chief executive of Visit Jersey, which last week unveiled a new brand as part of its plans to attract one million visitors a year by 2030, said that the figures should not be taken at face-value but that the signs were encouraging.
