Easyjet flights to the UK will resume at Belfast International Airport next month, it's been revealed.

It will initially fly from Belfast to Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Gatwick, Liverpool and Newcastle.

"easyJet has informed us of its intention to recommence passenger flights from Belfast International Airport to seven destinations across the rest of the UK on June 15," Graham Keddie, managing director of Belfast International Airport said.

“As Northern Ireland and the UK’s largest airline, it is a welcome and reassuring sign that EasyJet remains committed to its local routes and keeping NI open and connected for business.

“We will be ready to accommodate these flights and our teams have been working round the clock to ensure that all measures will be in place to ensure the safety and well-being of all those who pass through the airport.

“Public safety is and must be the number one priority at all times and we will be working very closely with easyJet and the other operators who plan to commence operations soon to ensure we are all in a position to safely allow passengers back into the airport.”
