Easyjet launches first Belfast to Reykjavik service

17 Dec 2014 by GrahamSmith

Easyjet has launched the first direct service between Belfast and Reykjavik.

The budget carrier is operating an A319 on the route, which runs twice weekly from Belfast International on Mondays and Fridays.

The airline said it expects more than 30,000 passengers will use the new service during the first 12 months.

Ali Gayward, Easyjet's head of Ireland, said: "This new year-round service will bring the number of Easyjet flights to Iceland up to 26 a week and we will carry in excess of 200,000 passengers per year to and from Reykjavik across all of these flights.

"It is a particularly exciting addition to our base at Belfast International due to the eclectic mix of activities and scenery on offer and we are confident that it will provide a popular addition to Easyjet’s network."

The new service, which launched last Friday, is Easyjet's seventh direct flight to Reykjavik.
