Aer Lingus announces new Belfast to Alicante route

The new schedule will see the airline introduce five services per week to Alicante, a port city on Spain's southeastern Costa Blanca, on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, starting 29 April 2016.

Services to both Faro and Malaga will increase from seven flights to nine per week, with additional flights now operating on Tuesday and Thursday, amounting to 40,000 additional seats.

Flights to Palma will increase from two services per week to five, operating on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday with 25,000 extra seats.

Flights between Belfast City Airport and London Heathrow will also benefit from a 21% capacity increase. A larger A320 aircraft will add 35,000 extra seats over the summer schedule.

The airline said it has introduced a larger aircraft on all sun routes for next summer following high demand for flights to sun destinations this year at George Best Belfast City Airport.

Belfast Aer Lingus Chief Commercial Officer, Mike Rutter said: "Aer Lingus was the fastest growing choice to the sun in Belfast in Summer 2015.

"This was achieved through a combination of the lowest fares in the market and the convenience of Belfast City Airport.

"On the back of this we've added a new route to Alicante and increased frequencies on our existing sun routes to Malaga, Faro and Palma, with over 100,000 additional seats to the sun throughout our summer schedule, to and from Belfast."

He added: "We are confident that our choice of routes, combined with great service and great fares and the convenience of Belfast City Airport will appeal to Northern Ireland holidaymakers and entice them to make the smart choice and fly Aer Lingus."
