easyJet has put 12** new domestic flights and seats on sale today to serve the demand for domestic travel. The flights will provide Brits with more opportunity to reconnect with friends and family across the country or book a long-awaited break and explore more of the UK this summer.

The airline is adding three new UK airports to its domestic network, which includes launching operations from Belfast City Airport for the first time to London Gatwick. easyJet will also be returning to Leeds Bradford and East Midlands airports with new flights to and from Belfast International Airport, routes previously served by the Stobart Air – operated Aer Lingus Regional, providing key connectivity between the regions.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager commented:

We know our customers can’t wait to be reunited with friends and family or to explore the UK so these additional new routes today should prove popular and will further strengthen our UK domestic network providing customers with even more choice. 

“We were sorry to see the news about Stobart Air and so are pleased to continue to provide key regional connectivity from Belfast International Airport to East Midlands and Leeds Bradford airports, as well as launching easyJet operations for the very first time from Belfast City Airport to London Gatwick.

“We also know it is important to our customers to be reunited with loved ones overseas so we continue to urge the UK government to add more countries to the Green list – which can be done safely – to make this possible.”

Katy Best, Commercial Director at George Best Belfast City Airport, said:

“We are thrilled to welcome both another new airline and another new route to Belfast City Airport this summer.

“This new easyJet service provides passengers with an additional choice to connect with London, and based just five minutes from the city centre, Belfast City Airport ensures ultimate convenience for those arriving in or taking off from Belfast.

“Through ongoing investment in our best-in-class facilities, Belfast City Airport promises a hassle-free, enjoyable experience for all our passengers and we look forward to working with easyJet to support this new route.”

The safety and wellbeing of all customers and crew remain easyJet’s highest priority and the airline continues to have a number of biological safety measures in place onboard in line with guidance from the relevant authorities.
