After cruise lines announced plans for UK-only cruises this summer, Britain’s biggest budget airline has revealed two new domestic routes from Bournemouth airport.
From late May, easyJet will fly from Bournemouth to Belfast International and Edinburgh. At present the Dorset airport has no passenger flights.
The Belfast route will operate on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 26 May. The following day, the Edinburgh service will take off, with flights on Thursdays and Sundays.
The weekend departures may appeal to domestic holidaymakers, while the midweek flights are aimed at business travellers and people visiting friends and family.
Both routes are due to end in late October.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK country manager said: “We’re delighted to offer two new domestic services from Bournemouth to Belfast and Edinburgh for the first time.
