Airport plans briefings
ISLANDERS are invited to learn more about the future development plans at Jersey Airport during two public drop-in meetings next month.
Earlier this month Ports of Jersey announced its plans to create an integrated arrivals and departures terminal at the Airport.
Under the proposals, there will be an extension to the existing departures terminal building with the construction of a mezzanine floor to create a larger central security search area and airside departures lounge.
The new arrivals facility, including baggage reclaim together with customs and immigration will be created on the ground floor of the existing terminal, which is where the current airside departures lounge is located.
Following the completion of the integrated terminal, the existing arrivals hall will be removed.
Two public drop-in sessions have now been arranged at St Peter’s Parish Hall on Saturday 13 January between 10 am and 12 pm and Wednesday 17 January between 6 pm and 8 pm. Representatives from the project management team will be on hand to discuss the plans with Islanders during the sessions.
Ports of Jersey is encouraging the public to email their ideas and images to help shape the detailed design stages of the project to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A dedicated area on the website, jerseyairport.com has also been created to allow Ports of Jersey to post updates and answer any specific questions and/or concerns that may have been raised.
