Are these new routes and increased frequencies on top of current schedule or is it at the loss of other routes?

Still going two daily for Winter 2018/19 season.

Would be good to see East Midlands added by Ryanair at some stage too!
Notice that these are now on sale. Very short time to fill these bookings?

The drop off fee is by in large a UK airport rip off charge. Airports should be in a position to provide the basic infrastructure for dropping off people.

All that said the £1 argument gets blown out of the water the minute you buy a pint or a coffee in DUB.
daa sell water for 1 euro, you make out that Belfast is cheap for such drinks when its not nor should it be.

Did Easyjet serve PRG before or was it just EI/LS?

Aer Lingus never flew Prague from Belfast, only Budapest.

Jet2, easyJet and briefly bmibaby have flown this route, I believe?

No its not particularly cheap there either but the point I'm making is the £1 set down charge saved by using DUB dissappears the minute you buy anything. Charging for this, much as I don't like it myself is standard and in fact more expensive than this in many other UK airports. And water is around the £1 a bottle mark in BFS.

So we’re having a debate about a £1 drop-off fee levied by a private airport company in line with standard airport practice across the country which, unlike in other similar airports, has never been increased since introduction.

Meanwhile, for the last fifteen years, since the Belfast - Dublin road was upgraded and paid for by EU funds, a toll of almost twice as much has been collected and pocketed against every vehicle making the journey south to Dublin Airport by the RoI authorities.

But apparently that’s fine and not even worthy of mention.

Couldn’t make it up....

I've never paid that toll and used the road countless times. Never to fly from DUB may I add

Depends if they can get something to replace it. Even as an unfavoured TA option, it still ticks a box that is increasingly hard to cover.

Wonder why itís such a massive struggle to make nyc work? IS it lack of American demand? (Question directed at NI posters with local knowledge).

Owen, its just that DUB is where all transatlantic depts are on the island, it will be v hard to get a airline into BFS without a good deal on price/incentives.
