The Minister said, “Enhancing Northern Ireland’s air connectivity is absolutely vital to our economic wellbeing, in respect of both direct investment and inbound tourism.



“So today’s announcement by Aer Lingus and George Best Belfast City Airport is very welcome news.

“The routes announced today between the airport and various GB locations have been vacant since earlier this year so it is particularly heartening to see them restored.”
