Stansted Airport announces new routes
Tue, 04 Jan, 2011
London's Stansted Airport has announced the launch of a number of new routes and flights.
Cambridge First reports that low-cost carrier bmibaby is set to commence flights from the facility to George Best Belfast City Airport as of March 28th 2011 - making it the only airline to operate the route.
Similarly, Albanian-based company Belle Air has recently begun two flights a week from Stansted Airport to the country.
Managing director of bmibaby Julian Carr expressed his excitement at the launch of the company's first low-cost routes from Stansted Airport.
"This route will be ideal for both business and leisure customers wishing to travel to Belfast at very low fares," he said.
Mr Carr's comments were echoed by Nick Barton, managing director at Stansted Airport, who predicted that the new flights will be "extremely popular with travellers".
Last month, the facility announced the appointment of Mr Barton, who had previously occupied the position on an interim basis following six years employment at the facility.
