    BMI’s Chairman, Sir Michael Bishop, is visiting Jersey on Thursday 2nd October 2008. A lunch is planned at which the Island’s government Economic Development Department claims the long term relationship between the Island and BMI will be the focus of discussion.

    Currently BMI operates the Heathrow to Jersey twice daily, with financial assistance from the Jersey government. Under the agreement if BMI wishes to drop the route it must give one year’s notice. Given the seat capacity reduction on the route for the winter 2008/2009 season, a further announcement regarding the Heathrow to Jersey is expected.

    Sir Michael Bishop has indicated today that he would like to see the frequency on the Heathrow to Jersey return to level previously provided by British Airways before they dropped the route. Which was four flights a day each way.

    However the route had not yet reached optimum capacity. For the route to continue people must carry on using it.

    That is all very well, but with the schedule changes for the Winter 2008/2009 period that may be difficult to achieve.
