easyJet celebrates launch of first flight from East Midlands to Belfast

easyJet has today launched flights from East Midlands Airport to Belfast International Airport in Northern Ireland for the first time, providing customers in the midlands with even more domestic connections this summer, to reunite with friends and family or take a long-awaited break.

Flights to Belfast are now operating up to four times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays throughout the summer and are on sale at easyJet.com with fares available from just £34.99. *

Belfast is the ideal location for a city break. Travellers can step back in time at Victorian-era tourist attractions, learn about Belfast’s past on a walking tour, dive into the city’s maritime history in the Titanic Quarter and sample the local food and drink scene in award-winning independent restaurants and pubs.

Holidaymakers wishing to explore the scenic countryside can take a day trip to the world-famous Giant’s Causeway.

All customers booking flights with easyJet benefit from some of the most flexible policies under its ‘Protection Promise’ which means that customers can book now for later this year with the confidence that if their plans change, so can their booking.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, said:

“We are excited to be celebrating the launch of our inaugural flight from East Midlands to Belfast today, and are confident this new route will be a popular addition for passengers in the East Midlands needing to travel for business or those wishing take a well-deserved break or to visit loved ones.”

Clare James, East Midlands Airport’s Managing Director, says:

“After one of the most difficult years in the history of aviation, it’s great to be announcing some positive news and waving off passengers on board an easyJet flight from this airport for the first time in 11 years.

“Domestic connectivity to other parts of the UK is an important part of our offer and I’m confident that this route to Belfast will be popular with travellers across the East Midlands region and beyond. We look forward to continuing to work with easyJet to explore further opportunities in the future.”
