Davey West Obviously you don't go to Jersey very often. I have studied this at degree level you don't know what you are talking about. Jersey has two boats a day from France you see school parties of 40 plus children disembarking from the boat, it is full twice a day in the summer. Why would Condor do two boats a day to France from Jersey obviously because more people use it. If you go to the Market you hear French being spoken quite often. The finance industry is different to the tourist industry. Why would Jersey spending a few million on adverts on tv for tourism? Guernsey doesn't do it because of the return. In total 1.1m passengers arrived in Jersey by sea and air in 2011. People arriving by sea were the majority with ferry travel up 4% while the number of people flying rose by just over 2%. People flying from Liverpool to Jersey rose by 27% to 36,000 passengers in 2011. Routes between Jersey and London remain the most popular with nearly 300,000 passengers flying from Gatwick.
