Planning permission granted for new pier and terminal amendments at Jersey Airport redevelopment

Planning permission has been granted to Ports of Jersey for a new, extended pier at the new combined arrivals and departures terminal at Jersey Airport.

Revisions to the existing planning permission, allowing two-storey extensions to the south, west and north elevations of the terminal itself, have also been approved, enabling an integrated development which will provide the basis for an efficient and seamless passenger experience.

Chapman Taylor is acting as Design Team Lead on the project as part of the Ramboll UK framework with Ports of Jersey.

The Jersey Airport project was in part initiated by the growth of the airport as well as by the need to adjust some of the airport infrastructure to meet regulatory requirements. This has provided the opportunity to develop a scheme, which will meet the client’s and team’s aspiration of creating a world-class modern gateway to Jersey, reflecting worldwide trends and incorporating a unique Jersey Club to reflect the special qualities of the Island.

The project includes the remodelling and extension of the existing airport terminal to increase capacity and enhance passenger experience. The current arrivals building will be removed on a phased basis, with construction of the redesigned integrated terminal taking place in a manner, which allows the airport to continue operating.

A 160m-long, double-height extension gives the terminal the feel of an international airport. The departures space will feature large departure gates overlooking the aviation apron. A new mezzanine level will house the airside departures lounge, while the new arrivals facility will be created to bring about a fresh look and feel for the airport.

Approximately 16,000m² of new and refurbished floor-space will be created and routes between all areas of the terminal will be made more intuitive. The use of natural daylight will be maximised by opening up the 120m-long rooflight, and the scheme’s flexible layout and transparency will make wayfinding easier, contributing to passengers’ peace of mind.

It is anticipated that construction of the new pier will start in autumn 2019.
