Extra Belfast City – Isle Of Man Flights Announced

Eastern Airways has introduced that it is to run additional weekend flights during the Isle of Man TT later this year in order to meet demand for services between Belfast City and the Isle of Man.

The UK regional airline, which started the Belfast City – Isle of Man route earlier this week, has now added weekend flights for 27 and 28 May, 3 – 4 and 10 – 11 June, 2017. Weekend services leave Belfast City at 12.15pm, landing in the Isle of Man at 12.55pm; while flights depart the Isle of Man at 11.05am arriving in Belfast City at 11.45am.
Fares start from £59 one way, including taxes and charges.

Mathew Herzberg, Head of Commercial for Eastern Airways, said: "Since moving quickly over the weekend to provide a continuation of the Belfast City-Isle of Man route, we have introduced three weekends of flights during the TT races, in response to high demand.

"The TT is a fantastic spectacle and we've added these extra weekend flights so people don't miss out, but we do advise they book early as other flights are filling up fast."

Katy Best, Commercial and Marketing Director at Belfast City Airport, added: "I'm delighted that Eastern Airways has recognised, only days after entering the Northern Ireland market, that there is a huge and fanatical motorsport fraternity based this side of the Irish Sea.

"This will be welcome news to TT fans and is a further endorsement of Eastern Airways' commitment to Belfast."
