Aer Lingus Now Only Operator from Belfast City Airport
From this week, British Airways will suspend its Belfast City Airport to Heathrow route leaving Aer Lingus as the only operator from the airport. There will now be five flights per week operated between Belfast and London Heathrow operating every day except Tuesday and Saturday. All other routes from the airport have been cancelled or suspended for the duration of the pandemic.
“We understand this is a temporary suspension of the British Airways service to London Heathrow which comes as a result of the airline’s review of its short haul network across various markets due to the Covid-19 outbreak,” a spokesperson for Belfast City Airport said.
“The Belfast-Heathrow route remains an important service within the British Airways network and to the local economy.
Aer Lingus will honour any bookings which have already been made for BA flights to Heathrow. A spokesperson for the airline said: “Aer Lingus continues to operate flights between Belfast City Airport and London Heathrow, using local crews based in Belfast.”
