Terminals at Jersey Airport (JER)
Jersey Airport (JER) stays busy for its size, though its annual throughput is nominal compared to giant facilities elsewhere in the UK. It does serve as a hub for the Channel Islands, and this accounts for much of the traffic. Most flights are to the UK, with a few international (mostly EU) options.

This single-terminal facility is shaped like an 'L'. As you walk in the front doors, Arrivals is in a wing to the right, while Departures is around the corner to the left. ATMs are strategically located throughout, though there aren't any outright bank facilities. The fact that the terminal is so small makes it easy to navigate.
Facilities are more than adequate to meet demands of the throughput. All the essentials are there, including dining, shopping and information facilities. Business travellers have few options to choose from outside of the executive lounge. An expansion project is currently underway.
one of the biggest surprises in Jersey Airport is its lack of exchange facilities, so it's essential to exchange ahead of time. The ATMs are in the Departures hall, yet another reason for inbound passengers to have their finances in order before they arrive.
Jersey has three major shopping outlets on the airside of the Departures lounge. These include a WH Smith, with snacks, gifts and reading material; an Alpha Airport Shopping outlet, with fashion, fragrances, electronics and accessories; and a standard duty-free outlet.
there is a Starbucks landside of security, but the other eating and drinking options in Jersey Airport are after security. The food court has the best selection of eateries, with a range of ready-made and cooked-to-order choices. The bar opened as a result of the expansion project and is the most atmospheric place to eat or drink in the airport.
Jersey Airport is close to the St Helier and other smaller towns so business facilities aren't really necessary. There are two airport lounges (Flybe and British Airways) that have a set of basic facilities for business travellers.
