easyJet expansion ‘good for economy’

Published: 18 June 2012

Belfast International Airport has said that once again, easyJet has demonstrated its central role in supporting the Northern Ireland economy by expanding its operations.

International Airport Business Development Director, Uel Hoey, said the news that easyJet was to introduce extra flights to London, Edinburgh and Manchester was a major boost for the region.

Mr Hoey said: “Four extra daily flights to Gatwick, Stansted, Luton and Southend are designed to facilitate business travellers. It will bring to seventeen the total number of weekday flights from Belfast International to the capital. 


“The additional services are in complete accord with the Government’s stated aims of developing tourism and a welcome addition for business travellers to and from London.

“The additional morning and evening services to the four London destinations will mean business people will have more time to complete their work with schedules that are designed for them and not the airline.


“In these testing economic times, we need to play to our strengths, and easyJet’s central role in keeping Northern Ireland connected is one such strength”.

Flights for all routes are now on sale at with fares from  £24.99, one way including taxes.
