easyJet has announced it will launch a double-daily service from Belfast City Airport to London Gatwick.
The service will commence on 9th July 2021 with fares starting from £28.99 one way.
Katy Best, Commercial Director at Belfast City Airport, said:
“We are thrilled to welcome both another new airline and another new route to Belfast City Airport this summer.
“This new easyJet service provides passengers with additional choice to connect with London, and based just five minutes from the city centre, Belfast City Airport ensures ultimate convenience for those arriving in or taking off from Belfast.
“Through ongoing investment in our best-in-class facilities, Belfast City Airport promises a hassle-free, enjoyable experience for all our passengers and we look forward to working with easyJet to support this new route.”
Passengers arriving at Gatwick can make use of the Gatwick Express service which leaves straight from the airport and arrives at London Victoria Station (Central London) in just 30 minutes.
A five-minute drive from Belfast city centre, Belfast City Airport has been named the UK and Ireland’s Most Convenient Airport and is easily accessible with public or private transport.
Ali Gayward, easyJet's UK Country Manager commented:
“We know our customers can’t wait to be reunited with loved ones,get back to business and explore more of the UK, so we are very pleased to return to Belfast City with a twice-daily service to London Gatwick which should prove popular and will further strengthen our UK domestic network, providing customers with even more choice.
“We also know it is important to our customers to be reunited with loved ones abroad so we continue to urge the UK government to add more countries to the Green list – which can be done safely - to make this possible.
“We continue to have some of the most flexible policies currently in place so customers can book with confidence and change their plans if they need to, making travel as easy as possible this summer.”
Flights will depart Belfast City Airport at 09.40 and 19.55, except on Sunday when flights will depart at 14.50 and 19.55.
All customers booking flights with easyJet benefit from industry leading flexible booking policies under its ‘Protection Promise’ which means that customers can book now with confidence that if their plans change, so can their booking.
All easyJet customers will now be able to change their flights this summer without a change fee, at any time up to two hours before departure, or request a voucher providing even more last-minute flexibility. Unlike other airlines, there are no restrictions on dates or destination; customers can transfer to any flights currently on sale up to the end of September 2022.
The safety and wellbeing of all customers and crew remains easyJet’s highest priority and the airline continues to have a number of biological safety measures in place onboard in line with guidance from the relevant authorities. This includes daily enhanced cabin disinfection effective in protecting against coronavirus for at least 24 hours and mandatory mask wearing for customers and crew. All easyJet aircraft are already fitted with HEPA filters, similar to those used in hospitals, which filter 99.97% of airborne contaminants in the cabin, including viruses and bacteria.
