Belfast makes better sense than Belfast?

easyJet has made a return to Belfast International Airport from Luton.  The airline transferred the service to George Best Belfast City Airport in January last year, but says it makes commercial sense to come back to Belfast International.

Ali Gayward, easyJet Commercial Manager, said: "Moving to Belfast City was always a trial, but in over a year we saw no tangible benefits.

"Our 20 other routes operate from Belfast International and we are now consolidating our overall operation by reinstating our Luton flights from there as well.

"Luton is a popular route for both business and leisure travellers, and dovetails well with our other London area services from Belfast International to Stansted and Gatwick.  We now operate up to 140 return flights to London every week which has been welcomed by the business community."

There will be up to three flights daily from Belfast International to Luton. www.easyjet.com
