Flybe comes to the rescue of Belfast-bound travellers

14 May 2014

Leading regional airline adds convenient midday service from Leeds Bradford to Belfast City to ensure NI travellers are not left ‘high and dry’

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has come quickly to the rescue of those Northern Ireland-bound passengers potentially stranded by today’s announcement of Jet 2’s withdrawal of services between Leeds Bradford Airport and Belfast International Airport by increasing its weekday frequency to Belfast City airport from three to four flights a day with immediate effect. The new middle-of-the-day service departs Leeds Bradford at 1250 and arrives in Belfast at 1335, providing a total choice of up to 24 return flights per week between the two destinations.

Even though one-way fares are from as low as £19.99 including taxes and charges, this weekend customers can take additional advantage of Flybe’s 20% off fare sale for flights booked between Friday 17th May and Tuesday 21st May for travel from 1st July to 14th December 2013.

Flybe UK Managing Director, Andrew Strong says: “Flybe has been providing flights from Leeds Bradford to Belfast City airport for over 21 years.  It is an important business and leisure route for our passengers and we are delighted to demonstrate our ongoing commitment by stepping in to provide a fourth daily flight to the Northern Ireland airport that is conveniently located just 10 minutes from the heart of city. We want to ensure travellers continue to have the best possible choice of affordable flights to and from both destinations.”

Tony Hallwood, Leeds Bradford Airport’s Marketing Director, adds: “We are delighted that Flybe has increased its Leeds Bradford to Belfast frequency from three to four times a day, with a convenient schedule for both business and leisure travellers.  Belfast City Airport is centrally placed and is ideal for those wishing to explore the vibrant culture and restaurants or experience the fantastic new visitor attraction, Titanic Belfast which is attracting world class recognition. Further afield, the beautiful coastal drive to the Giant’s Causeway makes it a perfect destination for a weekend break.”
