Extra easyJet flights to take off from Belfast

Extra flights will link Belfast with Amsterdam and Geneva this autumn, easyJet has said

Extra flights will link Belfast with Amsterdam and Geneva this autumn, easyJet has said.

There will be six more flights each week from Belfast International Airport to the Dutch capital and two additional services to the Swiss Alpine destination.

EasyJet commercial manager Ali Gayward said the Amsterdam route had been a great success.

"The city has always been a big attraction for business people and holidaymakers going on short breaks or longer stays, and there has also been significant business and tourism traffic from the Netherlands into Northern Ireland," she said.

"Our Geneva service has always been a firm favourite with Northern Ireland skiers and snowboarders. Flight times are great, so people can travel in the morning and be skiing down the slopes in the afternoon."

The extra Amsterdam flights begin from September 2 and to Geneva from December 11.

Earlier this week, easyJet announced that it is to introduce flights from Belfast to Southend in Essex from April 2 next year.
