From October 28, low-cost airline Easyjet is adding extra flights on a number of its several routes from Belfast International Airport.

On the Manchester route the number of flights will increase from two to three on Monday, Thursday and Friday. Last year, the new route to Manchester was launched by Easyjet. The two daily flights to Manchester, with fares from £21.99 one way, including taxes, were introduced.

On the Edinburgh route, the number will increase from three to four on Monday and from two to three on Tuesday and Wednesday.With a target to catch business travellers, Easyjet will increase the number of weekday morning and evening flights on Gatwick, Southend, Stansted and Luton routes.

“We are delighted that the airline is again demonstrating a willingness to explore new horizons in support of Northern Ireland’s economic growth.”, proclaimed Uel Hoey, business development director at Belfast International Airport.

Hoey added, the changes would provide “stability for millions of Northern Ireland air travellers.”

Ali Gayward, Easyjet commercial manager, remarked, “Our aim has always been to make travel easy and affordable. We remain committed to Northern Ireland and we are adding these extra flights in response to increasing customer demand for Easyjet services.”

“Edinburgh and Manchester are important centres for the business community and also for leisure travellers, including people going there for our popular city breaks”, added Gayward.

Easyjet, that operates 13 daily flights from Belfast to London, is the only airline to operate from Belfast to Bristol.

    Why not all weekdays? It would surely help pull in more traffic and higher revenues. As such we don’t have a real speedster on the tracks like the French TGV!
