Ryanair have told some passengers flying to London Stansted from Belfast International Airport that their flights have been cancelled.

The BBC has reported that passengers were informed of the cancellations in an email, which blamed it on an "operational review".

It comes after a decision to reduce flights from Belfast to London Stansted to twice weekly from June 2.

The airline currently operates three return flights a day between Belfast International and Stansted with an extra flight on Sundays.

In March Ryanair blamed air passenger duty (APD) and a weak market in the UK for the reduction.

"Our services to London Stansted and Manchester will reduce from three and two times daily, to twice weekly services, due to the weak UK market, and UK air passenger duty, which is currently payable at both airports on domestic routes (£26)," a statement said.

Ryanair have been approached for comment in relation to this story.
