EasyJet Adds Extra Flights to Birmingham

EasyJet at Belfast International Airport 

EasyJet, is to increase its flights between Belfast International Airport and Birmingham in response to  demand.

A second Sunday flight departing at 13.25 from Belfast and 14.50 from Birmingham will be added to the schedule from 31st March 2013.  Flights are now on sale with fares from  £22.99, one-way including taxes.

EasyJet began its Belfast International to Birmingham service in October 2012 and in just over one month has flown 14,000 passengers on the route. The additional frequency will add an estimated 13,000 passengers per year, taking the total to 150,000.

Ali Gayward, easyJet Head of Northern Ireland, said: “We only launched our Birmingham route in October and due to an overwhelming demand for affordable fares, we are delighted to announce the doubling of our Sunday flights. This additional frequency will see an increase from 12 to 13 flights per week.

“Our aim has always been to make travel easy and affordable and we are delighted to be able to show further commitment to Northern Ireland by responding to demand and adding the extra service.

“Sunday is a strong travelling day for both business commuters and people on weekend breaks, therefore doubling our Sunday offering will give our passengers further choice in flight times at affordable prices.

Earlier this month easyJet introduced allocated seating on all Belfast flights from 27th November. This, and Flexi fares that allow passengers to change their flights up to two hours before departure, further reinforces easyJet’s position as one of Belfast’s leading airlines for business passengers.
