The second flight departs Blackpool at 1550 and arrives in Belfast at 1720.

In addition, due to growing passenger numbers on the route, is rescheduling the times of its Blackpool to Isle of Man service, operating up to four return flights per day including a later 1925 flight to cater for commuters.’s chairman Noel Hayes commented, “For some time now, I have been receiving comments from business contacts in both Blackpool and Belfast saying that it would be fantastic if we were able to offer a daily shuttle service to cater for business travellers and so we are responding to demand with our new commuter service.

“Travel is a necessity;’s low prices make it affordable for everyone and the frequency gives travellers a wide choice of times. I anticipate these routes to be incredibly popular.”
