easyJet celebrates launch of first flights on new summer route from Belfast to Inverness

New flights from Belfast to Inverness take off for the first time today. Seats are available to book for this summer with great value fares still available from £22.99*. The airline is providing more flexibility for flights than ever before through its Protection Promise, including fee free flight changes to any date or destination up to 2 hours before departure.

easyJet has today launched flights from Belfast International Airport to Inverness in Scotland for the first time, providing customers in Northern Ireland with even more domestic connections this summer, to reunite them with friends and family or take a long-awaited break.

Flights to Inverness are now operating up to twice a week on Mondays and Fridays throughout the summer and are on sale at easyJet.com with fares available from just £22.99. *

Nestled in the Scottish Highlands, between mountain and sea, Inverness is a city rich in history, arts, culinary delights and natural beauty. Known as the cultural capital of the Highlands, the city of Inverness is the perfect destination for travellers looking for a cosmopolitan and varied city break, with all the wonders of the Scottish Highlands on its doorstep.

All customers booking flights with easyJet benefit from some of the most flexible policies under its ‘Protection Promise’ which means that customers can book now for later this year with the confidence that if their plans change, so can their booking. 

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager said:

“We are delighted to be launching flights for the very first time from Belfast to Inverness today, providing a convenient direct connection between Belfast and the Scottish Highlands which will be popular with customers looking  to explore more of the UK this summer, as well as those taking a long-awaited trip to reunite with family and friends in Scotland.

“easyJet continues to be the largest airline at Belfast and we remain committed to offering our customers great value fares and more choice when they fly with us.”

Uel Hoey, Belfast International Airport’s Business Development Director, commented:

“It is fantastic to join with easyJet today to launch our second UK regional new route this year.  Bournemouth has been a great addition to our route network and Inverness is particularly exciting as it provides a direct service to the Scottish Highlands; opening up a beautiful part of the UK for local holidaymakers to explore.”

All customers booking flights with easyJet benefit from industry leading flexible booking policies under its ‘Protection Promise’ which means that customers can book now with confidence that if their plans change, so can their booking. 

All easyJet customers will now be able to change their flights this summer without a change fee at any time up to two hours before departure, providing even more last-minute flexibility. Unlike other airlines, there are no restrictions on dates or destination; customers can transfer to any flights currently on sale up to the end of September 2022, and to any other destination on the airline’s network which spans 35 countries across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. This means that if some travel restrictions are impacting their destination country, such as self-isolation in destination or on return to the UK, customers can easily change their trip to another country on easyJet’s network. Plus, should a mandatory hotel quarantine impact a customer’s travel destination this summer, customers can now request a refund for their flight within four weeks before departure if the restriction is still in place, even if their flights are still operating.

The safety and wellbeing of all customers and crew remains easyJet’s highest priority and the airline continues to have a number of biological safety measures in place onboard in line with guidance from the relevant authorities. This includes daily enhanced cabin disinfection effective in protecting against coronavirus for at least 24 hours and mandatory mask wearing for customers and crew. All easyJet aircraft are already fitted with HEPA filters, similar to those used in hospitals, which filter 99.97% of airborne contaminants in the cabin, including viruses and bacteria.
