Aer Lingus celebrates four years of Belfast success

Last Saturday (10 December) Aer Lingus celebrated four years and over 2.3m customers to London and Europe from Belfast International Airport since operations began in 2007 and has captured 40% of the Heathrow market.

Just over one million customers have flown on the flagship Heathrow route and over one-and-a-quarter million passengers to the continent and the UK regions.

Launching their 4th anniversary celebrations Declan Kearney, Aer Lingus Director of Communications, reaffirmed their commitment to the travelling public in Northern Ireland and said: “Aer Lingus as a company is in great shape and is here to stay.”

He added: “Even though all businesses are battling through an unprecedented period of global economic instability and uncertainty, our Belfast base is a continuing success story.  Over the last four years we have received fantastic support here and we continue to meet our targets and deliver real choice and competition to the marketplace.

“Passengers are increasingly choosing Aer Lingus for their travel to and from Heathrow and we remain committed to our London Heathrow service.”  British Airways does not fly to Northern Ireland.  bmi (Belfast City), bmi baby (Belfast City), easyJet (Belfast International and Flybe (Belfast City) offer alternative services from London. www.aerlingus.com
