"easyJet is the largest airline in Northern Ireland and we have been committed to Belfast airport for over 18 years."

Graham Keddie, Managing Director at Belfast International Airport said: "Once again we are delighted to acknowledge easyJet strengthening their presence and growing their network from Belfast International Airport.

"The addition of twice weekly year-round jet services on key days to the Isle of Man will offer genuine opportunity to grow the market between Northern Ireland and IOM for both business and leisure travellers on what will by a quirk certainly be the shortest jet route within European airspace."
