Tue, 28 Feb 2023

Emerald Airlines, exclusive operator of Aer Lingus Regional services has announced a new service linking the Isle of Man with Belfast City.
The new route will commence on 24 April, operating 4 times per week, increasing to 6 weekly for the peak Summer season. 
This announcement comes after the airline increases capacity on its popular Dublin service, introducing up to double daily flights between the Isle of Man and the Irish Capital. 
Commenting on the announcement, Ciarán Smith, Head of Commercial at Emerald Airlines said: “We are pleased to be adding a new link between the Isle of Man and Belfast - which we expect will be received with open arms! In line with the rising customer demand, we will now be boosting our frequency on the popular Dublin service, effective from late March. We look forward to continuing to grow our services, offering convenient and cost-effective flights between the Isle of Man and Ireland.” 
Gary Cobb, Airport Director at Isle of Man Airport said, ‘The return of the Belfast City route is fantastic news, as well as the increase in the number of flights to Dublin. We know greater connectivity with Ireland has been requested for some time, so I am sure both routes will provide exciting travel options for Isle of Man residents as well as people wishing to visit Manx shores.’
