Bmibaby will commence a new route from George Best Belfast City Airport to Mahon in Menorca on 15th June 2012 and will operate up to twice a week on Monday and Friday until 24th September 2012. Bmibaby will also increase frequencies on its summer flights to Palma and Faro to up to three times a week and flights to Alicante up to four times a week. The airline also operates summer flights from Belfast to Ibiza and Malaga.
A new year-round service to Amsterdam launched at the end of October and a service to Geneva will launch in December 2011. Bmibaby is currently recruiting 10 additional cabin crew from Northern Ireland for the new routes.
Managing Director Julian Carr said: “2012 will certainly be a year of growth for us from Belfast City Airport. We are delighted today to be announcing another sunshine route to Mahon, Menorca, for summer 2012. Mahon is situated on the smaller Balearic island of Menorca and will complement our route to Palma, Majorca, by providing another sunny holiday destination direct from Belfast City.
