More choice for business customers

Two recent airline announcements have seen a wealth of new choices open up to customers who travel from Cardiff across the UK for business.

This news comes as a direct response to calls from the local business community to increase the amount of frequent routes that operate from Cardiff.

Flybe has responded to market demand in South Wales by adding a second daily flight from Cardiff to Belfast City, making it all the more simple and straight forward to get to Northern Ireland by air for a day of meetings. This useful service will complement a wide choice of existing Flybe services that serve business customers all year round, including Dublin, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Berlin Tegel and Paris.  

Flight schedule from 29th October 2017 – 24th March 2018*:

Mon-Fri
Departs Cardiff 0700 Arrives Belfast City 0805
Departs Belfast City 0835 Arrives Cardiff 0940

Departs Cardiff 1800 Arrives Belfast City 1910

*One way fares available for booking now at from £29.99 including taxes and charges.

In addition, Eastern Airways has entered into a new franchise partnership with Flybe, meaning all three routes served by Eastern Airways to Anglesey, Newcastle and Aberdeen are now bookable on Flybe.com.

Passengers making bookings for travel on or after 29 October can now book directly via Flybe.com.  Those booking for travel on 28 October or before will continue to book at EasternAirways.com

Deb Barber, CEO of Cardiff Airport, commented: “It’s very promising to see our airlines both responding to market demand and working together to offer more choice. 

Using air travel to travel across the UK is very useful for our business customers especially, whose busy schedules demand effective use of their time. Access to Belfast twice a day is ideal, with further daily flights to Anglesey, Newcastle and Aberdeen all bookable on Flybe.com.”
