Numbers will peak on Good Friday when 17,000 passengers are expected to fly on 116 flights, with customers travelling early to avoid the last minute Easter weekend rush.
In the UK as a whole, 150,000 passengers will fly to or from easyJet’s UK airports on almost 1,000 flights on Good Friday toppling the record for the most passengers travelling with the airline on one day during the Easter period.
Venice and Valencia top the list of most popular sunshine destinations from Belfast this Easter whilst Geneva is the most popular destination for those heading to ski resorts.
Customers can still get some great deals, with great value fares still available. These include Belfast to Venice from £49.34 and Belfast to Valencia from £118.02. Fares are per person, one way, based on two people travelling on the same booking.
Neil Slaven, UK Country Director, easyJet said: “Easter is always one of the busiest travel periods and this year will be no exception, demonstrating that our customers continue to book with confidence, in record numbers.
“From Belfast, the period between 18th and 22nd April will see more people than ever before flying either home or on holiday with us in what will be our busiest Easter ever.
“Whether customers are flying to visit friends and family or incorporating skiing into their Easter breaks this year, we will be working hard to make our customer’s Easter travel as easy and of course, as affordable as possible.
“EasyJet is well positioned to seamlessly connect Europe with the warmest welcome in the sky.”
