Exeter Airport celebrates launch of Belfast flights

Exeter Airport is celebrating the launch of new flights to Belfast with up to five flights a week with Emerald Airlines.

Emerald Airlines, the exclusive operator of Aer Lingus Regional flights has started another brand new service,  this time from Exeter Airport to Belfast. 

This new route started on Thursday, 26 May and is the second route from Exeter operated by Emerald Airlines, following the launch of new flights to Dublin last month, with seamless connections and US customs and immigration pre-clearance to New York, Boston, Chicago, Washington and Toronto on Aer Lingus’ North American network.

Stephen Wiltshire, Managing Director of Exeter Airport, said: “Belfast is a popular route from Exeter and we’re delighted so see flights start today. It means we’ll be offering 29 destinations for 2022/23 and providing passengers across the region with even more choice from their local airport.”

Ciarรกn Smith, Head of Commercial at Emerald Airlines, said the new route was part of an expansion of services from its Belfast base, which will also see the addition of two new ultra-low fuel burn aircraft to its fleet.

Exeter Airport which began operating in 1937, is a UK Certified Aerodrome with a runway lenth of 2076 metres. 

He added: “The launch of our Exeter service comes just in time for the long bank holiday weekend, allowing passengers to book last-minute getaways with convenient timings and low fares, making the most of their time off.”
