Flybe has announced three new services to Bristol, East Midlands and Liverpool from George Best Belfast City Airport bringing the total number of routes offered from the Northern Ireland airport to 17.
This move, which follows Ryanair’s announcement last week of its withdrawal from the airport at the end of October, will also mean locating two additional aircraft at the airport plus the potential creation of 250 indirect jobs adding to the 215 already directly employed by Flybe in Belfast.
From 31 October, Flybe will operate up to two daily flights to Bristol, two daily flights to East Midlands and up to four daily flights to Liverpool. In addition, the airline will increase its daily service to Glasgow Prestwick with an additional flight to cope with additional anticipated demand.
