Aer Lingus Regional has added two new routes from Belfast City Airport – to Newquay in Cornwall and Jersey in the Channel Islands.
Aer Lingus Regional – which is operated by Emerald Airlines – will start flying the new routes from April 3, 2023, and run them across Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays. The Jersey route will start – twice a week – from May 6.
Ellie McGimpsey, Aviation Development Manager at Belfast City Airport, said: “Since its return to Northern Ireland earlier this year, Aer Lingus Regional has shown steadfast commitment to Belfast City Airport, creating a new base from which passengers can avail of a range of routes. The announcement of two news routes to Newquay and Jersey further strengthens our partnership and is great news for passengers that wish to travel to must-see destinations across the UK.
“We are confident these routes will be popular with leisure and business travellers, alike, especially those wanting to take a beach break closer to home or enjoy a relaxing weekend throughout the summer.”
Ciarán Smith, head of commercial at Emerald Airlines said: “We are also pleased to be bolstering our Belfast schedule with the addition of two sought-after routes; Newquay and Jersey. We anticipate these new routes to be popular amongst those travelling for both business and leisure purposes, and we look forward to providing that increased connectivity to and from Belfast.”
Aer Lingus Regional already flies to Birmingham, Cardiff, Manchester, Leeds-Bradford, Glasgow, Exeter, Southampton and Edinburgh from Belfast City Airport.
