Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has today welcomed its first winter ‘jet-setters’ on board one of its new peak time jet services to London City from George Best Belfast City Airport.
The enhanced service is operated by a 98-seat E190 aircraft sourced from its Connect Airways’ partner, Stobart Air and will fly at scheduled times during the week when demand from the business community is particularly high.
Lesley McGrogan, Head of Business at Northern Ireland Women in Business, welcomed the increased capacity on this popular service for business travellers.
“As a regional business organisation, connecting with other areas of the UK is critical but for our members, it’s especially important that they can access same-day travel for work events or meetings. We welcome the enhancements made to the Belfast City – London City route and look forward to working in even closer partnership with our colleagues in London, thanks to the ease and convenience delivered by this route.”
Flybe has added these jet services with more seats at peak times on this important business route to provide its customers with an even wider choice of convenient travel options to the UK capital.
This key route has been operating for five years and Flybe has doubled its frequency since launch, so it now not only offers more seats but also a choice of up to six flights a day.
