Eastern Airways launches service to Southampton from Belfast International
Eastern Airways has announced it will be launching a new service from Northern Ireland to Southampton.
Set to commence from the beginning of April 2023, the airline will operate 14 flights each week departing Belfast International Airport to the destination on the south coast of England.
Welcoming today’s news, Belfast International Airport’s Business Development Director Uel Hoey, said:
“We are thrilled to welcome Eastern Airways as a new airline customer to Belfast International Airport (BIA) and are particularly pleased to be able to offer a strong south coast link to the majority of travellers in our locality who prefer to use Belfast International Airport as their conduit for both business and leisure travel.
"Eastern Airways will add a completely new string to the bow at Belfast International Airport as a long-established and successful UK regional airline, and their fleet gauge and flexibility will potentially in time open up a range of new regional destinations for the convenience of the travelling public which have hitherto been of insufficient market size to be offered by the current low cost jet operator partners at BIA.”
