easyJet’s growth at Belfast International continues, as the LCC introduced its sixth aircraft to its Northern Ireland base and launched four new routes this week – namely to the Isle of Man, Naples, Valencia and Venice Marco Polo. Pictured celebrating the news with some of the Belfast-based crew are Uel Hoey, Business Development Director, Belfast International Airport and Ali Gayward, UK Country Manager, easyJet. The carrier now flies 28 routes from Belfast.

  • easyJet has bolstered its presence at five of its bases across France, Italy and the UK this week. The longest sector is the 2,148-kilometre route from Belfast International (BFS) to Naples (NAP), whereas the shortest city pair is a domestic link from the Northern Ireland city to the Isle of Man (IOM), at just 119 kilometres. The average sector length of all nine services is 1,261 kilometres, while the mean weekly frequency is 2.1. Monday is the most popular day of the week for the nine new routes, with seven of them having flights on that day. The airline will offer no flights on Sundays across any of these new sectors. Also note that only two of the nine routes will face direct competition based on data taken from OAG schedules. See how Belfast International’s FTWA compares to others from around the world
