Belfast City gains airline

EASYJET is to switch its Belfast – Luton operation from the Province’s International Airport (BFS) to the downtown George Best city centre operation (BHD) with effect 7 January 2010.  Flights remain twice daily.  The airline points out that it is principal carrier in Northern Ireland and currently operates a base at Belfast International Airport, with five aircraft offering a choice of 19 destinations, carrying over 3m passengers a year and employing 173 staff.  The decision to move the route to Belfast City is a result of the airline’s plans to assess if easyJet passengers find a benefit in flying to an airport closer to the City of Belfast when travelling on shorter routes.  However the airline says its commitment to maintaining market leading air services for the Northern Ireland market overall remains unaltered and the bulk of flights will remain at Belfast International.  If successful easyJet plans to provide greater frequencies on the Belfast City route and will consider additional routes from Belfast City Airport over time. www.easyjet.com
