Flybe has begun operation of a fifth daily weekday flight between Leeds Bradford and Belfast City airports which – thanks to increased demand – will operate year-round.
Tony Hallwood, aviation development director at Leeds Bradford Airport, commented, “I’m really pleased to see the growth of Flybe’s year round frequency on the Belfast City route adding yet more choice for passengers across the Yorkshire and Humber region. The new frequency is really important as it provides increased flexibility for customers who regularly travel to Belfast for both business and leisure.
“The timing of the additional service in the middle of the day allows business travellers to have more flexibility around their meetings schedule. In addition, with the many tourist sights that Belfast City and Leeds have to offer, I am sure that the wider choice of departure times will be welcomed by leisure and short break visitors. I look forward to seeing the Belfast City route continuing to go from strength to strength.”
Vincent Hodder, Flybe chief revenue officer, added, “We are delighted that demand for this route supports the addition of an extra weekday frequency year round and that we can now offer passengers a greater flexibility with even more options for convenient day return travel.”
