Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline and the UK’s Number One Domestic carrier, has announced a comprehensive program of flights between Liverpool and George Best Belfast City Airport.

The airline will start to operate up to 4 flights per day on the route from 31st October 2010 with fares starting at just £24.99 one way, including taxes and charges.

The news comes just a week after Ryanair announced that it was to stop operating all its services from Belfast City Airport, including regular flights to Liverpool. This announcement now means that this important route will be maintained, continuing to give the region’s passengers a high frequency, convenient and value for money link between Liverpool and Belfast City Airport.

Flybe will operate 26 weekly flights between Liverpool and Belfast City Airport, with 4 return flights per day, Monday to Friday and three return flights per day at weekends.

Chris Harcombe, Peel Airports’ Aviation Development Manager, commented “We’re delighted that Flybe have recognised the demand for this service, their quick decision means that passengers will now see no interruption of service, continuing to provide both business and leisure passengers with a convenient, regular link.

Traditionally, Belfast City has been a popular and important route for us and we’re pleased to be able to announce a replacement service so soon. We’re confident that it will prove as popular as Flybe’s existing service to the Isle of Man” Mike Rutter, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer comments: “We are delighted to be able to introduce these three crucial routes following last week’s announcement by Ryanair to cease operations from Belfast City Airport and with it, services to Liverpool.

Flybe has been serving the community in Northern Ireland for over 26 years. We are wholly committed to continue providing comprehensive connectivity throughout the UK and beyond to convenient destinations at competitive prices with maximum flexibility and choice.”
