Flybe upgrades Belfast City and Edinburgh services

Guest Writer

Popular European regional airline Flybe has seen its first winter ‘jet-setters’ climb onboard its new re-jigged services from George Best Belfast City and Edinburgh Airports to London City.

The new peak-time flights are operated by 98-seat E190 aircraft sourced from Connect Airways’ partner, Stobart Air, and fly at scheduled times during the week when demand from the business communities is particularly high.

Lesley McGrogan, head of business at Northern Ireland Women in Business, has welcomed the increased capacity on this popular service for business travellers. “As a regional business organisation, connecting with other areas of the UK is critical but for our members, it’s especially important that they can access same-day travel for work events or meetings.

We welcome the enhancements made to the Belfast City – London City route and look forward to working in even closer partnership with our colleagues in London, thanks to the ease and convenience delivered by this route.”

This key route to London City from Belfast has been operating for five years and the airline has doubled its frequency since launch, so it now not only offers more seats but also a choice of up to six flights a day; whilst from Edinburgh,  Flybe operates 24 flights a week.
