Belfast International Airport Managing Director, Graham Keddie, has described as a ‘first-class boost’ the decision by Jet2.com to expand its Northern Ireland workforce by fifty.
Mr Keddie said: “Fifty additional jobs will mean in the region of £1 million to the South Antrim and the wider regional economy. Jet2.com has a solid track record of growth and here’s just one of the tangible benefits you can see when an airline expands.
“The fifty new posts will bring to 800 the total number of new jobs announced at Belfast International within a ten-month period. We anticipate further employment announcements as passenger number continue to increase.
“Jet2.com is a valued partner airline with the potential to grow even further. As an airport, we will do all we can to facilitate the airline.”
