CONDOR has announced a 31% increase in its number of car passengers travelling between the UK and Jersey over the past three months.

The company transported 3,300 more cars to Jersey on its high speed services from Poole during July, August and up until 20 September when compared with the same dates in 2019.

John Napton, chief executive of Condor, said the company’s summer schedule has boosted the visitor figures and that he was pleased to see the benefit to Jersey’s tourism sector.

‘These numbers would not have been possible with the 2019 schedule. We have been able to offer direct sailings from the UK which allows us to carry more passengers at peak times, concentrated around weekends when most people want to travel.

It is also fantastic to see that our visitors are staying longer in the Island than previously, which has obvious benefits for the hotel trade,’ he said.

‘The success of this summer, coupled with positive indicators for next year, offers optimism that 2023 could be a good season for the Islands for UK visitors wanting to travel overseas without any Brexit uncertainty. We will be working closely once again with our industry partners to maximise the opportunity,’ he added.
