Birmingham’s new destinations

There is now competition on the air route between Birmingham and Belfast, albeit different airports.  Belfast International is now being serviced twice daily by easyJet and George Best City Airport up to six times per day by Flybe.  easyJet offers a 150-seat Airbus A319 whilst Flybe use both the smaller (88 seats) and larger (118 seats) version of the Embraer E series.  Both operators reduce their programme at the weekend.

Ali Gayward, easyJet UK Commercial Manager, said:  “We’re excited to be celebrating easyJet’s first year-round route from Birmingham.  The move marks easyJet’s commitment to strengthening its network across the UK with a particular focus on supporting business passengers.  Our schedule, with flights operating at peak morning and evening times, also reflects our continued focus on meeting the needs of business travellers, as well as offering leisure travellers affordable access to Northern Ireland”.

Also new for the winter season is an SAS Scandinavian Airlines direct route from Birmingham to Stockholm with operations starting today (29 October 2012).  SAS will be offering one flight a day to Stockholm from Birmingham, every day of the week except Saturdays using a 120-seat 737-600 aircraft. www.easyjet.com www.flybe.com www.flysas.com
