United Airlines reduction in seasonal capacity

Published: 12 June 2014

Temporary measure

United Airlines will reduce capacity on the Belfast Newark New York service from 6th January 15 until 12th March 15.

The decision is part of a United Airlines company-wide review . Belfast is one of four European stations affected (others are Dublin, Rome and Manchester)

Belfast International Airport is naturally disappointed that it is one of four European airports to be affected by this temporary measure. We have been kept fully informed by United who assure us that it is their intention to resume normal service on the Belfast-Newark route from the 11thMarch next year.

Taken in the round, this is a successful route for United but performance is not traditionally as strong in the first couple of months of the year. United has contributed massively to the Northern Ireland economy over the past decade and we know it will continue to provide a vital link for business, and support continuing efforts to attract inward investment, for the remainder of 2014 and over the New Year period, and again when the service returns in March, 2015.
