British Airways’ subsidiary, BA CityFlyer, is set to launch a new daily service from London City to Belfast City Airport from September.
This route was previously operated by Flybe. A single daily service will commence in September and we understand there are plans to further increase frequency. The route will be served by a 98-seat E190 jet aircraft and is on sale now.
Brian Ambrose, Chief Executive at Belfast City Airport, said: “London City was an important route in the Flybe network providing connectivity between the heart of Belfast and the heart of London’s financial district.
“Belfast City Airport is just a five minute drive from the city centre and this convenience is mirrored for passengers landing at London City Airport from which Canary Wharf can be reached on the Docklands Light Railway in less than 15 minutes and Bank within 22 minutes.
“British Airways has been a longstanding partner of Belfast City Airport and the arrival of BA CityFlyer further enhances its commitment to Northern Ireland.”
