Flybe Cancels Newcastle - Belfast City Service
Low cost regional airline, Flybe, has announced it is cancelling its route between Newcastle and Belfast City from the end June.
The loss-making airline said the Belfast City service had "failed to perform to expectations" and added that passenger numbers remained insufficient to justify its continued operation.
A spokesman said in the Irish media: “Flybe carefully reviews the viability of all our routes on a regular basis, looking both at passenger numbers but also at external cost pressures. This is done not only to monitor where we can offer increased regularity on a given route but also where passenger numbers make a flight economically as well as environmentally harder to justify."
easyJet continue to operate flights from Newcastle to Belfast International with upto 3 flights each day.
