FLYBE BOOSTS WINTER SCHEDULE FROM BELFAST CITY WITH NEW LIVERPOOL SERVICE

25 NOVEMBER 2014

 

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has today announced that from 2nd February 2015 it will operate a new year round service from Belfast City Airport to Liverpool Airport offering a choice of up to three flights a day. Seats are on sale now at www.flybe.com from £24.99 one way including taxes and charges.

In line with its commitment to providing unrivalled regional connectivity, the airline sees this as an additional convenient link between two major UK cities.  

Flybe has been serving the community in Northern Ireland for some 30 years, with flights direct into Belfast City. The airport is a short ten minute drive right into the heart of the business district, delivering a significant time saving for business travellers and again showing that Flybe is the ‘fastest way from A to Flybe’.

Paul Simmons, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We are committed to providing easy and affordable connectivity throughout the UK at competitive prices with maximum flexibility and choice.

“Flybe has, over the last twelve months, undergone a significant overhaul of the business and this has resulted in a more cost-effective, efficient and flexible operation, enabling us to increase the number of routes we can offer to better serve the travelling needs of both our business and leisure customers from a convenient airport.”

Brian Ambrose, Chief Executive of Belfast City Airport, added:  “We have worked closely with Flybe over the years to provide our passengers with a high frequency domestic route network to destinations throughout the UK such as Edinburgh, Manchester and Newcastle, and most recently London City which is already performing particularly well.

“Liverpool is a welcome addition to our network. The frequency and times of the flight is suited to both leisure and business passengers who will also benefit from competitive fares as a result of the increase in passenger numbers the airline has experienced this year.

“Featuring heavily within their growth strategy, we look forward to continuing our relationship with Flybe and further strengthening our route network from Belfast City Airport.”
