Statement From Brian Ambrose, Chief Executive Of Belfast City Airport

Date: 05 Mar 2020

In response to Flybe entering administration, Brian Ambrose, Chief Executive of Belfast City Airport said:
“We are extremely disappointed at this news.   
“Our first thoughts go to the Flybe employees and passengers affected.
“From Belfast City Airport, Flybe had operated a strong and profitable base of 14 routes to key regional destinations across the UK, including international hubs such as Birmingham and Manchester.
“The airline was a significant economic driver for the region, carrying 1.6 million passengers to and from Belfast in 2019.
“I am confident that these well-established routes, coupled with our city centre location and recent £15m investment in terminal facilities, will prove an attractive option to airlines.
“Negotiations with a number of carriers are already underway.
“Passengers should not travel to the airport and should refer to for further information and advice.”
