British Airways have announced new domestic routes will take-off from Belfast this summer with Glasgow one of the destinations included. 

The plan is to boost important business and tourism links between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.

Flights from George Best Belfast City Airport will link Northern Ireland to Exeter, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford and Newquay Airports. 

These will run alongside existing flights and return flight tickets will start at £48. 

Tom Stoddart, Managing Director of BA CityFlyer, which will operate the new routes, said: "We’re delighted to announce these new services from Belfast, which will enhance our regional network and maintain vital connections between Northern Ireland and other key UK destinations.

“We're sure these routes will be popular with customers getting away for a UK holiday this summer, as well as those visiting friends and relatives, and we’ll continue to listen to their feedback about where they want to travel.”

Flights between Belfast and Glasgow will start August 2, with flights each night of the week, except Saturdays, at 7pm.
