Stamps celebrate Jersey airport anniversary

Six stamps, a Miniature Sheet plus a fascinating Prestige Booklet were issued on 10 March 2012 to mark the 75th anniversary of Jersey Airport. All the stamps by Jersey Post feature aircraft that have landed at Jersey during different decades in the airport's history.
The Prestige Booklet is filled with images and information about the airport, plus more aircraft that have landed since it opened and is a 'must have' for aviation enthusiasts. It also contains three sets of stamps and a Miniature Sheet.
Group Chief Executive Officer for Ports of Jersey, Doug Bannister, says: "We are delighted that Jersey Post has chosen to celebrate Jersey Airport's 75th anniversary with this commemorative stamp collection. The airport has played a significant role in everyday island life for the past 75 years and the information booklet and accompanying stamps are a wonderful reflection of this."
