According to a statement published on BelfastCityAirport.com, the Newcastle service will operate daily and the Isle of Man service will operate four times weekly, before increasing to six times weekly for the summer season.
Twice-weekly flights to Jersey will also launch on 6 May, according to the statement published on BelfastCityAirport.com.
The statement published on BelfastCityAirport.com quoted its aviation development manager, Ellie McGimpsey, as saying, “Providing excellent choice for our passengers is a top priority at Belfast City Airport, and we are delighted we can expand on our current offering with these two new services.
“Since the first Aer Lingus Regional flights, operated by Emerald Airlines, took off in spring 2022, we have seen the airline grow its route network from Belfast City Airport in response to sustained high demand.
“We have no doubt that these new routes to Newcastle and the Isle of Man will also prove hugely popular, and we look forward to continuing and developing our successful partnership.”
The statement published on BelfastCityAirport.com quoted Emerald Airlines’ head of commercial, Ciarán Smith, as saying, “We are very pleased to be adding to our Belfast schedule with the introduction of two new routes: to the Isle of Man and Newcastle. We look forward to continuing to grow our services, providing more options for those travelling to and from Belfast.”
