easyJet to fly Belfast to Birmingham route

easyJet has today announced a new route from Belfast International Airport to Birmingham Airport. The new route will increase easyJet destinations from Belfast International to 23 – equalling the highest number of routes the airline has operated from the airport.

The inaugural flight will take off from Belfast International Airport on 22 October – initially a daily service, and from 29th October will increase to two flights a day on weekdays, and one on Saturdays and Sundays.

Ali Gayward, easyJet commercial manager, said, “In the past year alone easyJet has also launched services to Manchester and, most recently, London Southend. Additionally, we will, for the first time, be flying an Airbus 320 aircraft (180 seats) from Belfast to leading holiday sun spots during the peak summer period. This route represents a major milestone in our network growth which sees easyJet operating year round from Birmingham for the first time ever.”
