Flybe routes filled by easyJet at Belfast

No-frills airline easyJet has announced new Belfast services, filling gaps left by the second demise of Flybe earlier this year.

It has added 140,000 additional seats on routes from Belfast International and Belfast City to London Gatwick, London Luton, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Manchester.

Belfast City flights to and from Luton and Manchester, starting on June 26, are new for the airline.

From June, easyJet will also base an aircraft in Belfast City overnight providing a new 7am departure to London Gatwick.

This means it will now offer up to four daily flights between Belfast City and London and the option for longer day trips to the UK capital.

Katy Best, Commercial Director at Belfast City Airport, said: “The announcement of services to London Luton and Manchester from Belfast City Airport is fantastic news for passengers, coming only six months after easyJet’s last route launch to Glasgow.

“In the space of 18 months, easyJet has increased its capacity and the number of routes operated to six, which is not only a testament to the strength of our partnership but also showcases our commitment to providing passengers with choice, convenience, and flexibility.”
