Regional airline Flybe has started operating its summer schedule with 289 flights per week across a choice of 15 routes from George Best Belfast City Airport.

This includes its daily service to Aberdeen which celebrates 10 years in operation.

It also sees the return of the weekly holiday flights to Newquay and up to seven rotations per day to Flybe’s Manchester hub.

Chief commercial officer Paul Simmons said: “We are delighted to be offering passengers the choice of 15 routes this summer and to providing affordable quality flights to the widest possible range of attractive destinations.

“Our popular service to Aberdeen now joins Edinburgh and Glasgow in having reached the ten year milestone and together with Inverness which turns ten next year and our franchise operations with Loganair Flybe is providing unrivalled connections throughout Scotland from Belfast.

This month also marks our first summer services for new routes to Liverpool and London City. From the start London City proved a particularly popular route and due to the demand we increased flights on this route to four a day.”
