British Airways has announced plans to offer four additional domestic routes from Belfast City this summer, following the demise of Aer Lingus Regional franchise operator Stobart Air.

The carrier’s BA Cityflyer subsidiary will operate a total of 18 flights per from Belfast City to Exeter, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford and Newquay Cornwall airports over the coming months, adding to its existing services from the airport to London City and Heathrow.

Flights to Exeter and Leeds Bradford are already under way, having been taken over on a temporary basis following the cessation of Stobart Air services.

Cornwall Newquay will follow on July 3 (having been scheduled to launch as an Aer Lingus Regional route on June 28), and Glasgow on August 2 (having originally been due to launch on July 1).

Full schedules for each route – which will be operated by Embraer 190 aircraft – can be seen in the table below.

Katy Best, commercial director at Belfast City Airport, said that “Continuity on these services is excellent news for domestic connectivity to and from Northern Ireland”, while Tom Stoddart, managing director of BA CityFlyer, said:

“We’re delighted to announce these new services from Belfast, which will enhance our regional network and maintain vital connections between Northern Ireland and other key UK destinations.

“We’re sure these routes will be popular with customers getting away for a UK holiday this summer, as well as those visiting friends and relatives, and we’ll continue to listen to their feedback about where they want to travel.”

“We also welcome the recent announcement about the NI Domestic Aviation Kickstart Scheme and await further details with great interest.”
