Low-cost airline Easyjet has started operating services to and from Jersey.

The airline has replaced Thomsonfly on the island's Luton route. It is also due to begin a Liverpool service later in the year.

The airline company expects 200,000 passengers to fly on the new services within its first 12 months in Jersey.

Economic Development Minister Senator Philip Ozouf said the routes meant that the world of low-cost air travel had finally arrived on the island.
