Edinburgh – Belfast City with Stobart Air

New daily service to launch in August.

The capitals of Scotland and Northern Ireland will be further connected from August with a new service operated by Stobart Air.

Stobart Air, operator of Aer Lingus Regional, will introduce the Edinburgh-Belfast City service on August 27 with up to three flights a day on a ATR72-600 aircraft.

It brings the number of services operated from Edinburgh by Stobart Air to four – Dublin, Cork, Shannon and now Belfast City.

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said: “It’s been an incredibly difficult time for everyone in the aviation industry over the past few months so it’s great to finally see some positive developments and growing connectivity.

“Scotland and Northern Ireland share strong bonds, including in business, culture and diaspora, so we are delighted to enhance our aviation connections to make travel between these two great cities even easier.

“We look forward to welcoming passengers back to Edinburgh and have worked hard to introduce a number of new measures to ensure everyone can return to travel with confidence and flysafe.”

Commenting on the announcement, Stobart Air Managing Director Andy Jolly said: “As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, Stobart Air has been challenged and we have worked hard over the past number of months to protect our airline and to position us for the future, once restrictions ease and passenger demand increases.

“Working with Belfast City Airport and Edinburgh Airport, along with our partners, Aer Lingus we are pleased to establish a base at Belfast City to service flights to Edinburgh.

“High frequency day-return flights from Edinburgh to Belfast City Airport will cater for both business and leisure travellers for direct, convenient and cost-effective flights.

"We continuously strive to provide our passengers with frequent, convenient and affordable services. We look forward to welcoming our passengers on board this new route from Edinburgh from 27 August."
