      Leading regional airline to fly first ever scheduled service between Northern Ireland
      and Humberside Airport
      Flybe, the UK’s Number One Domestic Airline and the largest scheduled carrier from George Best Belfast City Airport, has today announced a brand new four times weekly service to Humberside Airport operating on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays with seats now on sale from £25.99 one-way including taxes and charges for travel effective 27th May.

      The new route will be the first ever scheduled service from Northern Ireland to Humberside airport. It will be operated by one of the airline’s state-of-the-art 78-seat Q-400 aircraft featuring comfortable 2x2 seating configuration and brings the total number of destinations offered by Flybe from Belfast to fifteen.

      Mike Rutter, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer, comments: “We’re delighted to be adding yet another new service from Belfast thereby increasing the already extensive choice of affordable routes we operate for our Northern Ireland travellers which, during Summer 2010, will now number up to 490 flights a week.”

      Humberside airport is centrally located to provide great access to the North Lincolnshire region and is just a short distance from Hull, Grimsby and Scunthorpe.

      Adds Mr Rutter: “Flybe prides itself on ensuring that travellers have the widest possible choice of affordable, quality flights to attractive business and leisure destinations. With people already planning next year’s holidays and wanting their budgets to go as far as possible, it’s advisable to book early to take advantage of the lowest possible fares.”
