easyJet has announced it will be launching
flights from Belfast International Airport to Krakow on 24 April 2007.This new
Polish route will operate three flights weekly. The addition of this route is part of a wider
expansion plan for Belfast International Airport, which will be announced in the
coming weeks.

easyJet is the largest airline in Northern Ireland carrying over 3.6 million
passengers every year from the provence and it will be the first airline to offer a
direct flight from Northern Ireland to Poland.


Poland joined the EU in May 2004 and has since become an attractive leisure
destination, a focus of investment and business development. This new service to
Krakow in the south of the country, close to the boarder of the Czech Republic, has
been hotly anticipated in Northern Ireland and will allow businesses between the two
regions to thrive. Krakow is also a fantastic city break destination for couples,
friends and families; One of Poland’s hidden treasures, the city boasts colourful
medieval architecture, numerous world-class monuments, charming vistas and some of
the world’s most inviting restaurants. Relaxing strolls and shopping is on the menu
in Krakow, with its Grand Central square and beautiful never ending plaza, ideal for
people watching from the cafes or partying in the buzzing cellar bars.



Paul Cable, easyJet’s Northern Ireland marketing manager, said:

“easyJet is delighted to be announcing another new and exciting route from Belfast
International to Krakow. Northern Ireland is a very important market to easyJet and
we are looking forward to announcing more new routes and increased frequencies for
Summer 2007 in the coming weeks.

There is a great demand for direct low-cost travel in Northern Ireland and easyJet
recognises the great potential for further development from the region”
