EasyJet ramps up domestic network with 12 new routes

 

Budget carrier easyJet has put a dozen new domestic flight routes on sale to meet demand for domestic travel while international travel options remain severely limited.

The airline is adding three new UK airports to its domestic network, which includes launching operations from Belfast City Airport for the first time to London Gatwick.

EasyJet will also be returning to Leeds Bradford and East Midlands airports with new flights to and from Belfast International Airport, which were routes previously served by the now-closed Stobart Air.

The airline has also put over 60,000 additional seats on sale across existing routes from Belfast International to Birmingham from 3 July, operating 22 times a week; to Manchester from 9 July operating 27 times a week; to Edinburgh from 2 July and to Glasgow from 2 July.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager said: “We know our customers can’t wait to be reunited with friends and family or to explore the UK so these additional new routes today should prove popular and will further strengthen our UK domestic network.”

“We were sorry to see the news about Stobart Air and so are pleased to continue to provide key regional connectivity from Belfast International Airport to East Midlands and Leeds Bradford airports.”

All easyJet customers will now be able to change their flights this summer without a change fee, at any time up to two hours before departure, or request a voucher.
