New Route of the Day (7 September 2022): easyJet between Bristol and Belfast BHD

BRS - BHD

easyJet has further expanded its presence at Belfast BHD with the addition of a 3-weekly service from its base at Bristol. The first flight on the 420-kilometre route was on Wednesday 7 September. Service will operate on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays for the rest of the summer season and also through the winter season. According to Cirium schedule data the two airports were last connected in June 2012 when Flybe operated the route with its Q400s.

This becomes easyJet’s third route from Belfast BHD. Service from London LGW began in July 2021 while Liverpool service started on 1 July this year. A fourth route from Glasgow GLA is set to begin at the end of October.

We continue to further strengthen our network in Belfast, having recently added services to London Gatwick, Liverpool, and Glasgow from Belfast City which are already proving very popular with our customers. As Belfast’s largest airline, we remain committed to offering customers a wider range of flight options and great value fares.”
