The brand new route to Belfast offers a flexible schedule ideal for those who want to make a short business trip or a longer break to really see what Belfast has to offer, especially as Belfast City airport is just 10 minutes from the heart of Belfast. The return of flights to Palma de Mallorca offers a key summer holiday route for families and we look forward to welcoming everybody onboard in the summer.”


Chris Harcombe, Aviation Development Director at DSA, comments: “We are always pleased to introduce more routes to DSA’s repertoire but know this route to Belfast is one that our customers have been keen to see and so are delighted to be able to make it a reality. Being able to extend our route to Palma de Mallorca is again through listening to our customers and ensuring we are the easy and obvious choice for their travel needs.”
