Belfast City flights could boost Yorkshire businesses

Increased flights from Leeds Bradford Airport to Belfast City could offer considerable opportunities for Yorkshire businesses.

Flybe has increased its 2016 summer schedule from Leeds Bradford Airport, with an additional daily weekday service to Belfast City from 4 July offering a choice of up to five flights a day, to meet growing customer demand.

With great transport to the Republic of Ireland, the rest of the UK, Europe and further afield, Belfast is a highly connected city, providing significant export and networking prospects.

The city is also home to a range of international investors and recognised global brands, with almost 75% of investors reinvesting in Northern Ireland.

Furthermore, with some of Northern Irelands key sectors including business services, ICT and electronics and energy, building links with the UK region boasts a wealth of opportunities for Yorkshire businesses.

Vincent Hodder, Flybe’s chief revenue officer, said: “Time saving, affordable, punctual travel is what we are delivering to our customers this summer, specifically scheduled to attract those looking for reasonably-priced, convenient day returns and short breaks.

“With additional frequency, our customers can choose to travel at the times that best suit them, realising our commitment to be the ‘Fastest way from A to Flybe’ and aiming to be on time every time.”

Leeds Bradford Airport's aviation development director Tony Hallwood adds: “Belfast continues to one of Leeds Bradfords strongest routes on our growing domestic network.

"We are pleased to work with Flybe to deliver increased frequency and provide increased flexibility for our business and leisure passengers."

One way fares are from £19.99 including taxes and charges and are available for booking at flybe.com.
