Airport welcomes reinstatement of Canary Islands flights

Belfast International Airport has welcomed the addition of the Canary Islands after the UK government removed the islands from the quarantine list.

Flights to all four Canary Islands will resume over the next week, with easyJet launching a new service to Tenerife twice a week from 7th November and the reintroduction of the winter flying schedule to Tenerife on 31st October with Gran Canaria and Lanzarote on 1st November and Fuerteventura on 7th November.

Graham Keddie Managing Director at Belfast International Airport said, “This is very welcome news and we are delighted that both and easyJet have moved so quickly to reinstate these flights from Belfast International Airport as well as the additional service to Tenerife. The Canary Islands are always a popular winter destination and I am sure many people will be delighted that they are now able to take their well earned winter break in the knowledge they will no longer have to quarantine.”

Belfast International Airport has implemented a range of safety and hygiene measures throughout the airport including one way systems, social distancing and the wearing of face masks coupled with enhanced cleaning regime and hand sanitising stations to ensure our passengers have a happy, healthy trip.
