Celebrating 15 years of flying from Belfast International

20th June 2019 • Posted in Announcements

After flying millions of happy customers on holiday from Northern Ireland, this week we celebrated 15 years of flights from Belfast International Airport.

To mark the occasion, customers flying to the sunshine with us from Belfast International were given a special celebration of traditional Fifteens (a traditional tray bake from Northern Ireland), cake, refreshments, and two lucky customers even won a pair of return flights.

Colleagues from our award-winning team at Belfast International Airport also joined the celebrations.

Back in 2004, the first flight took off from Belfast International to Prague, with two destinations on sale at the time of launch. Today we operate to 30 destinations from Belfast International, with 450,000 seats on sale this summer alone and four based aircraft supporting this huge operation.

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays said: “We have continued to enjoy enormous success since our first flight took off from Belfast International in 2004, and that is all down to the support and loyalty from holidaymakers and independent travel agents across Northern Ireland. Although we have expanded from two destinations to 30, we remain focused on the same values today as we did back in 2004, which are providing customers with a VIP experience, friendly low fares, and great flight times on our award-winning airline.”
