British Airways Resumes London-Belfast Flights

Big news for travel between England and the Emerald Isle: British Airways has re-launched services between Northern Ireland and London Heathrow after an 11-year gap.

Following the acquisition of bmi by International Airlines Group (IAG), British Airways is once again operating the air link between Belfast City Airport and London Heathrow.

The event marked the arrival of the first British Airways liveried aircraft to Belfast and was attended by the secretary of state for Northern Ireland, Owen Paterson, Arlene Foster, minister for enterprise, trade and investment and the lord mayor of Belfast, Ald. Gavin Robinson.

British Airways is maintaining the current summer schedule on the service, with six daily return flights, but has announced it will increase frequency when it introduces its winter schedule on October 28, adding an additional flight each day, bringing the total to seven.
