Easyjet to Add New Services from Belfast
Easyjet has today announced new services from both airports in Belfast. George Best Belfast City airport will receive a new double daily service from London Gatwick starting on 9th July. These flights will be operated by a Gatwick based aircraft will arrive at 09.10 with an 09.40 departure for the 90 minute flight to Gatwick. The evening flight will arrive in Belfast at 19.55 with a 20.25 departure. Times will vary at the weekends.
The new services from Belfast International Airport will be on routes vacated following the suspension of services by Stobart Air. Easyjet will serve East Midlands four times per week starting on 2nd July and Leeds Bradford will also get four services per week starting on 9th July. The airline has also added over 60,000 additional seats to existing routes from Belfast to Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Commenting on the new routes from Belfast International, EasyJet’s Country manager, Ali Gayward said, “We know our customers can’t wait to be reunited with friends and family or have more opportunity to explore the UK so these additional new routes from Belfast International should prove popular and will further strengthen our UK domestic network providing customers with even more choice, with more seats on domestic flights from Northern Ireland than any other airline. We were sorry to see the news about Stobart Air and so are pleased to continue to provide key regional connectivity from Belfast International Airport to East Midlands and Leeds Bradford airports. We also know it is important to our customers to be reunited with loved ones overseas so we continue to urge the UK government to add more countries to the Green list – which can be done safely – to make this possible. We continue to have some of the most flexible policies currently in place so customers can book with confidence and change their plans if they need to, making travel as easy as possible this summer.”
