Belfast International Airport remains open for runway operations

"As easyJet - in alignment with our other passenger airlines amidst stricter Government directives on social distancing - have made the decision to cease all passenger operations, passenger flights are currently suspended. The airport remains open and operational as we are the main airport for Northern Ireland providing a critical arterial airlink for emergency medical and cargo operations 24 hours a day, all year round. We are still working hard to ensure that vital supplies continue to arrive daily so we can help those who need it most.

We will continue to provide as much help as we can for staff on the front line and recognise the important work they are doing to keep Northern Ireland supplied with vital goods during this unprecedented crisis.  We are in close contact with all of our airline partners, government officials and the public health agency and are planning to recommence passengers flights as soon as practicably possible to do so."
