The airline’s customers in Northern Ireland will now be able to explore even more of the UK and Europe, with flights operating twice a week to the Isle of Man throughout the year and flights to Naples and Valencia operating twice a week throughout the summer season.
The addition of these destinations to the network brings easyJet’s number of routes from Belfast to 31. The announcement follows the news that the airline will add a sixth aircraft to the base, which is due for delivery in June 2018.
EasyJet has flown over 50 million passengers since it launched operations from Belfast over 18 years ago, and over four million passengers in FY 2017. The airline’s operation continues to grow, having seen a 5.2 per cent increase in capacity of seats offered from Belfast compared to the previous financial year.
The airline continues to be the largest carrier serving Northern Ireland, operating over 70 per cent of flights from Belfast International Airport and almost 50 per cent of all commercial passenger traffic across Northern Ireland.
