Stobart Air, operator of Aer Lingus Regional routes has added a new route to its network, connecting Belfast and Glasgow through frequent flights.
The new to Belfast City Airport (BHD) to Glasgow Airport (GLA) route will initially operate on a daily basis with 11 flights weekly, commencing on 1 July, and will increase to 19 flights weekly in August.
Anticipating a resumption of air travel within the Common Travel Area in line with the successful rollout of vaccination programmes across the UK and Ireland, Stobart Air has added this new route to its Aer Lingus Regional network to provide additional choice and frequency for customers wishing to travel between Belfast and Glasgow for business and/or leisure.
All Stobart Air flights will operate in line with Covid protocols put in place by the UK Government, Stormont Executive, and health authorities.
Stobart Air has implemented a number of enhanced health and safety measures to protect staff, crew and passengers, including enhanced aircraft cleaning, mandatory face coverings (with the exception of small children and those who are unable to wear a face mask for medical reasons), and boarding, disembarkation, and in-flight procedures to reduce crew and passenger interaction.
Commenting on the routes, Andy Jolly, Managing Director of Stobart Air, said:
“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.
“Anticipating a successful Covid-19 vaccination rollout allowing air travel to increase safely, we are pleased to add this new service from Belfast City to Glasgow to our route network, which will cater to both business and leisure travellers with direct, convenient, and cost-effective flights.
“We are committed to providing our passengers with frequent, convenient, and affordable services through our regional connections. We look forward to welcoming our staff and customers onboard this new route.”
