Earlier this year, Eastern Airways started its first scheduled services from the airport, with a link to the Isle of Man.

Now, the airline will also connect Belfast to Newcastle with a daily, weekday service, which begins in September.

Katy Best, commercial and marketing director at Belfast City Airport said: "Newcastle has always been a very popular destination for passengers and it is fantastic to once again be able to offer this route from Belfast City Airport.

“Eastern Airways has made a hugely positive impact on the Northern Ireland market since entering in March with its Isle of Man service, and we are delighted that the airline has recognised the market’s potential through the introduction of this flight to Newcastle.

“This announcement comes during what is an exciting period for Belfast City Airport following the positive momentum generated by co-hosting the Routes Europe conference, and we are confident of continuing to grow our UK and European route network further in the future.”
