2,000 more passengers pass through Jersey Airport last month compared to January 2016 and 2017.
Official Ports of Jersey stats show 86,956 people travelled by plane last month.
British Airways was the most popular airline, with a market share of 31%. Easyjet had 29% and Flybe 20%.
However, fewer people continue to travel by sea and between the islands.
Passengers on the Jersey-Guernsey air routes dropped by 11%.
At the harbour, sea passengers were down by 2,600 compared to January 2017.
Ship arrivals were down from 143 to 134 as the month saw Condor cancelling numerous sailings because of stormy weather and strikes in St Malo.
