British Airways flights return to Birmingham Airport

Solihull Editorial 7th Nov, 2021   0

THE BRITISH Airways tailfin is back at Birmingham Airport.

After three years away the company is operating flights between Belfast and Birmingham.

The schedule provides ten flights a week up to the new year, increasing to 16 weekly in early January.

Birmingham Airport’s aviation director, Tom Screen, said: “It was great to see a British Airways aircraft land on our runway again after three years absence.

“Domestic connectivity facilitated by regional airports can have a range of economic and social benefits, which are more important now than ever as the country recovers from the impact of the pandemic.

“Belfast is currently our busiest route so we are incredibly pleased that BA CityFlyer will be providing additional capacity and regular flights for our region’s business and leisure travellers.”

Flights are operated using an Embraer 190 with capacity of 98 seats.
