LinksAir has commenced a service from George Best Belfast City Airport to Robin Hood Doncaster Sheffield Airport, with one-way fares from £64.00, including all taxes and charges, plus hold baggage up to 15kg. The airline is operating 11 return flights per week, providing passengers with greater access to the North of England and East Midlands.
Ellie McGimpsey, Belfast City Airport, said: “The introduction of this new route signifies our commitment to developing a supreme route network with frequent connections to locations popular with both business and leisure passengers.
“Our own location, just minutes from Belfast City Centre, is extremely convenient for passengers. With cities such as Sheffield and York less than an hour’s drive from Doncaster Sheffield Airport, visitors are able to maximise their time at their destination and make the most out of their journey.
“At Belfast City Airport, we regularly invest in our own facilities to enhance the customer experience and we look forward to welcoming more visitors from the Yorkshire region.”
The route will operate two return flights on weekdays and one evening return on Sundays.
Roger Hage, LinksAir Commercial Manager, said: “I am thrilled to be in Belfast today to celebrate the beginning of this exciting new service to Robin Hood Doncaster Sheffield Airport. I have no doubt this route will be of economic benefit to the Northern Ireland economy and we are look forward to carrying passengers between the two destinations.”
