A total of eight new routes from Jet2, six of which are new to Belfast and will include Naples. Another airline will add at least one new route.

I looked briefly and the island doesn't have flights to Antalya, Bergerac, Milas-Bodrum, Cephalonia, Paphos and Thessaloniki, most of which are served from more than one Jet2 base.

BA occasionally use the A321 on BHD flights, and the B763 is being retired, so aircraft flexibility is not an issue. Would BFS be able to provide BA with their own lounge and a dedicated jetway? Plus, Willie Walsh has said on numerous occasions that he intended to keep IAG at one Belfast airport - surely Aer Lingus wouldn't move back to BFS given the base lost them millions.

I suppose it would be a plus if LS expanded their New York service as part of that announcement!

Can't see New York working........not at their current prices.
Trip in December with LS including baggage would cost you well over 500


They are great on the leisure routes, but personally would like to see a few more city destinations

Eight new routes in total from Jet2, six of which are unserved from Belfast.

Another airline operating from Belfast is expected to launch at least one new route, having finalised a deal at the weekend - most likely Ryanair to Ciampino

AYT no longer served ex DUB so wonder if thats the route the CEO was banging on about.

Quiet concerning a tour operator is rapidly expanding back into turkey when nothing has changed since capacity was axed.
