Flybe starts services between East Midlands and Belfast City airports

Flybe starts services between East Midlands and Belfast City airports

The new version of the UK regional airline Flybe has begun operations to and from East Midlands and  Belfast this month with a daily rotation linking the two cities in a little over 40 minutes.

Belfast and Northern Ireland are great places to explore with so much on offer to tourists and business people alike. For example, the city itself has the world’s largest Titanic visitor experience, is a must-see and is just one of the many cultural escapes, scientific exhibitions and literary-inspired attractions in the city. A short journey away from Belfast, the rugged Causeway Coastal Route - voted the Number 1 Region in the World to visit by Lonely Planet in 2018 - is a popular attraction for lovers of the outdoors and keen walkers.  Of course, for Game of Thrones fans, there is no better place to visit. The popular TV series was filmed in Belfast and across Northern Ireland. The area’s rugged coastlines, historic castles and breath-taking scenery provided the perfect backdrop. The Game of Thrones tour takes in famous filming locations.

Clare James, East Midlands Airport’s Managing Director, said: “We’re delighted that this popular route is being well-served by flybe. Direct connectivity to Belfast is a boost for this region and the new route provides frequent and easy access to Northern Ireland for people who are visiting for leisure or business. It’s also great news for tourism in the East Midlands and we offer a very warm welcome to visitors who want to explore everything this region has to offer.” 

Dave Pflieger, flybe’s CEO added: “We’re overjoyed to be starting flights from East Midlands Airport to Belfast. Our commitment will always be towards offering customers choice whilst providing the great value we’re known for, and we think this is a fantastic route to represent that.

“Connectivity is a priority for us, which is what makes us proud to play a role in tying together these two iconic locations. The new route will be essential to our mission of becoming the number one choice for both regional flights in the UK and between the UK and EU. We’re confident that our flights from East Midlands to Belfast are yet another step towards the future we envision for flybe.”
