Brian Ambrose, Chief Executive of George Best Belfast City Airport said:
"We welcome the Minister’s decision to remove the Seats for Sale restriction which allows us to forward plan with certainty helping safeguard the current workforce.
“The Seats for Sale restriction was based on the physical capacity of the old terminal building and had no relevance since we moved operations to the new terminal in 2001.
“The removal follows the airport fulfilling the requirements as set by the department with the installation of a noise and tracking monitoring system.
“The planning agreement, which caps flights at 48,000 in any 12 month period, provides a balance between protecting the interests of residents whilst ensuring the airport can develop within these boundaries and continue to contribute significantly to the local economy.”
