easyJet, the UK-based European regional airline, has launched two new year-round flight routes departing from Southampton Airport.
These routes, connecting Southampton with Belfast International and Glasgow, have commenced operations, enhancing connectivity for travellers in the South of England to vital hubs in Northern Ireland and Scotland, catering to both leisure and business travellers.
The first flight from Southampton to Belfast International took off on Sunday, October 29, marking the start of a service that now runs up to three times a week on Mondays, Fridays, and Sundays. The new route to Glasgow, which departed from Southampton on Thursday, November 2, will be operational twice a week on Thursdays and Saturdays.
These new routes are designed to offer year-round service, reinforcing domestic connections from the South West to these significant cities across the UK. Whether passengers are seeking a city break, a convenient business connection, or the chance to explore Northern Ireland and Scotland, these flights are set to provide convenient options.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, said: ‘We are delighted to have launched our new services from Southampton to Belfast International and Glasgow, which will provide our customers in the South of England with direct and convenient departures to Northern Ireland and Scotland, making it easier for people to visit more of the fantastic destinations the UK has to offer for leisure or business.
Mark Beveridge, Operations Director at Southampton Airport, said: ‘We are really pleased to welcome easyJet’s first services to Glasgow and Belfast International.
‘Following the recent completion of the runway extension, we are working hard and speaking regularly with our airline partners to deliver the routes and services the people of Southampton and the wider region deserve.’
