    • EDDIE THE EAGLE SOARS INTO BELFAST TO LAUNCH BMIBABY GENEVA ROUTE

      Tuesday 29 Nov 2011

      Olympic legend and unlikely superstar Eddie the Eagle took to the skies to spend the day in Belfast today (29th November) to help launch low cost airline bmibaby’s new route to Geneva.

      The new ski route straight to the slopes, launches on 17th December from Belfast City Airport and will operate twice a week Saturdays and Sundays with a Friday service over Christmas.
       
      Following the launch of Amsterdam at the end of October 2011, this is the second European route bmibaby has launched from Belfast City Airport this year.

      During 2012 the low cost airline will launch six new sunshine routes from Belfast City Airport. bmibaby is currently on sale with flights to Mahon, Malaga, Alicante, Palma, Faro and Ibiza for summer 2012.

      Julian Carr, managing director, bmibaby, said:

      “Who better to launch our ski route than larger than life ski jumping legend Eddie the Eagle. The new Geneva service offers Northern Ireland customers the opportunity to get to the slopes conveniently from Belfast City Airport and whether you are a beginner or a seasoned skier, the many resorts close to Geneva will cater for your needs.”

      Katy Best, Belfast City Airport commented:

      “From the heart of Belfast City and straight to the slopes, we are delighted to expand our European passenger base with our airline partner bmibaby.

      “Geneva is an excellent destination for skiing, and offers a huge number of resorts within a short drive.

      “We believe the product we have to offer at Belfast City Airport, including close proximity to the city, our customer services initiatives and our terminal facilities will make flying from Belfast City Airport to Europe the preferred choice for passengers in Northern Ireland.”
