FlyBe Selects Belfast City as a New Base

The new FlyBe has announced that George Best Belfast City Airport will be the airline’s second base after its home base of Birmingham. The airline will announce a full list of routes and destinations next week and will put flights on sale. The new start-up plans to rapidly grow, create more jobs, and add more flights as the summer progresses. The new FlyBe was established in April 2021 and is expected to operate a fleet of up to 32 Bombardier Dash 8-400 aircraft.

Dave Pflieger, CEO of FlyBe

Commenting on the announcement as Belfast as a new base, the Flybe Chief Executive Officer, Dave Pflieger said, “Next week is going to be an exciting time for customers and communities that have been waiting to hear from us about low fares, new routes, and new destinations—all of which are being timed to coincide with the restart of the economy and a return to normality after two difficult years for all. As you’ve heard, our team has been working hard for over a year and a half to bring customers a new airline that people will love, and we are particularly excited to be flying to Belfast City Airport and serving Northern Ireland. Once we start flying from Birmingham, Belfast, and many other cities in the UK and EU, we are confident that a new and improved Flybe will provide customers with great value, more choices, and the opportunity to quickly and more conveniently visit loved ones, go on holiday, and more easily visit customers or attend important meetings. Given that goal, Flybe hopes to do its part to help communities across the country bounce back from the dramatic impact of the global pandemic.”
