Flybe has announced plans to introduce a new flight route between Belfast and Manston in Kent this summer
Budget regional airline Flybe has announced plans to introduce a new flight route between Belfast and Manston in Kent this summer.
The new flights - the carrier's second service from Manston Airport - are set to commence from May 26 and will run three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
Mike Rutter, chief commercial officer of Flybe, said: "We're delighted to be adding this new service between Belfast and Manston, providing passengers with a quick and direct route between south-east England and Northern Ireland."
However, the airline has decided to scrap its service from Manston to Manchester from April 4 - highlighting the need for adequate
travel insurance to get further journey assistance in case cancellations occur out of the blue.
The company said that low passenger numbers had made the flights "economically and environmentally hard to justify".
Mr Rutter added: "Whilst the service to Manchester has unfortunately proved unsustainable, we've been delighted with the support shown by travellers to and from the region on the Manston-Edinburgh route and remain committed to developing our route network from Manston."
