Commenting on the services operated by British Airways franchise partner, Managing Director of BA Cityflyer, Tom Stoddart said, “This year has shown how much customers want to stay connected with the rest of the UK. We’re responding to the customer demand we saw over the last few months by extending some of our newest UK routes from Belfast City Airport.“
Also commenting was the Commercial Director at Belfast City Airport, Katy Best who said, “British Airways has a longstanding presence at Belfast City Airport, and its introduction of regional services earlier this year has been strongly welcomed by our passengers who know and enjoy the excellent BA product. This latest increase in frequency is superb news for those who want to plan ahead and book winter staycations or weekend breaks in Birmingham, Exeter, Glasgow or Leeds. The convenient flight times will also be attractive to business travellers who can avail of same day returns.”
