easyJet now offers 32 routes from Belfast and in June based a new aircraft at the airport taking the total number of aircraft based there to six.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, said: “As Northern Ireland’s largest airline we are pleased to further strengthen our network at Belfast with these three new routes which we believe will prove popular additions to our existing network.
“We have operated flights to and from Belfast International Airport for over eighteen years and remain committed to expansion at the Airport. In support of this, last month we based an additional aircraft at the airport enabling us to deliver long term, sustainable growth and provide passengers with a greater range of destinations, all with low fares and great service.”
