Bars, Cafés and Restaurants
There are eateries in both halls of the airport. Departures has the excellent Island Market, which, where possible, serves dishes using locally sourced produce. Nearby is The Bar, which has a full range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. The World News Café in the Arrivals Hall offers snacks and light bites. Additionally, the airport has several vending machines that provide snacks as well as hot and cold drinks.
Currency Exchange, Communications and Banking Facilities
Surprisingly, Jersey Airport has no currency exchange facilities, so you will need to change your money before you arrive. There are two ATM machines in the Departures Hall. Post boxes are supplied in both the Arrivals and Departures halls, and stamps are available from the De la Mare Florist in the Departure's Hall, opposite the information desk. Wi-Fi Internet access is provided throughout the terminal building.
Business and Conference Facilities
The airport has limited business and conference facilities, perhaps due to its proximity to large towns, which offer ample amenities for business travellers. However, the airport does have two VIP lounges operated by British Airways and Flybe, which can offer some business equipment and rooms for visitors.
Jersey Airport fully complies with EU standards on persons with reduced mobility. All essential areas of the airport are located on the ground floor. All public areas of the terminal are wheelchair-friendly and there are adapted toilets and telephones across the airport. All three car parks have designated parking spaces reserved for the mobility-impaired. Airlines can provide wheelchairs and assistance can also be arranged through the airport information desk.
