Flights to Fuerteventura and Prague launch on 29 and 31 October, Flights to Salzburg will commence this winter!
This week easyJet will launch two new routes from Belfast International Airport to Fuerteventura and Prague.
easyJet commences flights to Prague on 29 October 2018. Flights will operate twice weekly on Mondays and Fridays on an A319 aircraft with fares starting from £24.68 one way per person. The airline expects to carry 11,100 customers in the first winter of operation.
The new service to Fuerteventura, which is expected to carry 13,000 customers in the first winter of operation, commences on 31 October 2018. Flights will operate on an A320 aircraft twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays with fares starting from £26.70 one way per person.
easyJet now offers 35 routes from Belfast and in June based a new aircraft at the airport taking the total number of aircraft based there to six.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, said:
"As Northern Ireland’s largest airline we are pleased to further strengthen our network at Belfast with the launch of these two new routes this week which we believe will prove popular additions to our existing network.
“We have operated flights to and from Belfast International Airport for over eighteen years and remain committed to expansion at the Airport. In support of this, earlier this year we based an additional aircraft at the airport enabling us to deliver long term, sustainable growth and provide passengers with a greater range of destinations, all with low fares and great service.”
Belfast International Airport Business Development Director, Uel Hoey:
“Prague, Fuerteventura and Salzburg bring the number of routes that EasyJet operate to an all time high of 35 providing an increasing range of destination choice, with low fares, from Belfast. Prague has always been a great city break destination but will also attract inbound tourism to Northern Ireland so we are delighted to see it back on the departure boards. The addition of both Fuerteventura and Salzburg will give increased service to those destinations and we are sure they will prove extremely popular.
Additionally, the airline will launch flights to Salzburg on 13 December 2018 with flights on sale now. They will operate twice weekly on Thursdays and Sundays on an A320 aircraft with fares starting from £24.68 one way per person. The new service is expected to carry 8,280 customers in the first winter of operation.
