Jersey European Airways (JEA)has joined in the boom in Europe's regional markets, reporting record results for its latest financial year to March 1997. The carrier, which last November signed a franchise deal with Air France on routes from London Heathrow to Toulouse and Lyon, posted a 27%rise in sales to £95 million, with profits up by nearly a third at £3.4 million. JEA says that the 32%rise in seat capacity over the last year should feed through into growth for 1997/8.
