Posted 2 October 2017 · Add Comment

EasyJet has confirmed a milestone for expansion at its Belfast Airport, with the introduction of an A320 aircraft- the sixth aircraft to be positioned at the airline's Northern Ireland base.



The aircraft is scheduled for delivery on 22nd June 2018 and will remain based in Belfast throughout the year.

From summer 2018 easyJet will now base three A319 and three A320 aircraft at its Belfast International Airport base.

As Northern Ireland’s largest airline, easyJet operates more than 32 flights per day between Belfast and London and has already added over 6,000 seats to the route this winter. This ongoing growth demonstrates the airline’s long-term commitment to Northern Ireland, connecting Belfast with London and other popular destinations.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Commercial Manager, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be celebrating further expansion at Belfast Airport. The addition of another aircraft will help us to deliver long term, sustainable growth at the base providing passengers with a greater range of destinations, all with low fares and great service.

“EasyJet is the largest airline in Northern Ireland and we have been committed to Belfast airport for over 19 years. We are proud to have carried over 50 million passengers in that time.”

Graham Keddie, Managing Director at Belfast International Airport, said: "We are pleased once again to acknowledge easyJet's strong focus on developing the UK market by adding a sixth aircraft to their Belfast base.  As Northern Ireland's leading airline they continue to be a strong supporter of the local economy creating even more capacity and choice for Northern Ireland consumers."

EasyJet serves 28 routes from Belfast airport, offering up to 636 flights per week.
