Belfast flights for British Airways

The British Airways tail fin has returned to Birmingham Airport to operate flights between Belfast and Birmingham. The flights will operate twice daily, increasing to three times a day on a Thursday and Friday.

The flights will be on an Embraer 190 with capacity of 98 seats. Customers can book on BA.com with travel between October 31, 2021 and March 26, 2022.

Tom Stoddart, managing director of BA CityFlyer which operates the routes, said: "This year has shown how much customers want to stay connected with the rest of the UK. We're sure this route will be popular with customers getting away for a UK holiday, as well as those visiting friends and relatives.”

Tom Screen, aviation director of Birmingham Airport, said: “It is great to welcome back British Airways to Birmingham after three years absence. This route ensures even more choice for travel to Belfast from Birmingham and with plans to grow the schedule adds to the flexibility of travel. Customers can also be reassured that flights are covered by the airline's flexible booking policy.”

Thanks to the flexible booking policy, customers are able to exchange their booking for a voucher or move their dates without incurring a change fee if their plans change.
