easyJet announced it will commence operations from Belfast City Airport, with a twice daily service from London Luton.
The route, currently operated between London Luton and Belfast International Airport, will switch to Belfast City Airport from Thursday January 7, 2010.
The decision to move the route to Belfast City is a result of the airline’s plans to assess if easyJet passengers find a benefit in flying to an airport closer to the City of Belfast when travelling on shorter routes.
Passengers who have already booked to travel between Luton and Belfast International from January 7 onwards will be contacted and advised they can either transfer free of charge to the Belfast City route or claim a full refund.
Seats for the new route go on sale today at www.easyjet.com with fares from £21.99 one way (£45.98 return inc taxes)
