Flybe, Europe’s largest independent regional airline and the biggest operator at George Best Belfast City Airport has been named ‘Best UK Domestic Airline’ at the Northern Ireland Travel and Tourism Awards.  This is the second consecutive year that Flybe has won the accolade ahead of BA, Aer Lingus, easyjet and Jet2.  The award was decided following independent voting by travel agents throughout Northern Ireland.


Commenting on the win, Ken Harrower, Flybe Regional Sales Manager said:“We are delighted to have won this Award, made all the more special because it is determined by our peers across the local travel and tourism industry.  The travel trade makes an invaluable contribution to growing our corporate and leisure business in Northern Ireland and its endorsement evidenced by this award is testament to the strength and success of our partnership.  It is especially significant that we have won in this particular year which not only marks our 30th anniversary operating out of George Best Belfast City Airport, but also sees us take major strides towards the next three decades. In reference to these, the personal touch remains a key element as it remains a critical part of our commitments to customer satisfaction and congratulations must go to all of the staff at Belfast who made winning this award possible.”

Flybe was presented with the award at a gala dinner in the Slieve Donard Hotel in Newcastle attended by over 400 representatives of the travel and tourism industry in Northern Ireland.
