The operator of Aer Lingus Regional routes, Stobart Air has announced the addition of a new service between Glasgow and Belfast City airports, expanding its network to 30 destinations.
Flights between the two countries will initially begin on a daily basis from July 1, operating 11 times a week. This is then set to increase to 19 in August.
“Stobart Air has called on the UK and Irish governments to support the industry and work with all industry stakeholders on a plan and timeline for the resumption of safe air travel,” said Andy Jolly, managing director of Stobart Air.
“In light of the successful Covid-19 vaccination rollout allowing air travel to increase safely, we are pleased to add this new route from Glasgow to Belfast to our route network, which will cater to both business and leisure travellers with direct, convenient, and cost-effective flights.”
Matt Hazelwood, group commercial director for AGS Airports, added: “Belfast has always been a hugely popular destination with our passengers, so we are really pleased to see Aer Lingus and partner Stobart Air restart this busy route.”
All flights operated by the carrier will follow stringent health guidelines set out by the UK government and safety officials.
