BA Cityflyer, a wholly-owned subsidiary of British Airways, has confirmed it will be relaunching flights from Birmingham Airport (BHX/EGBB) from this autumn.
The London City Airport-based airline will operate a twice-daily service to Belfast City using an Embraer regional jet.
Announcing the return Tom Stoddart, the managing director of BA CityFlyer said: “This year has shown how much customers want to stay connected with the rest of the UK.
“We’re sure this route will be popular with customers getting away for a UK holiday, as well as those visiting friends and relatives.”
BA Cityflyer is also continuing to offer flights between Belfast and Leeds, Exeter and Glasgow this winter after it took over the routes when Stobart Air collapsed.
Mr. Stoddart added, “We’re responding to the customer demand we saw over the last few months by extending some of our newest UK routes from Belfast City Airport.”
A new route from London City Airport (LCY/EGLC) has also been announced to Salzburg, Austria, and a domestic route to Southmapton.
