Easyjet will begin flying once a week from Belfast International Airport to the city of Split from 20th of May 2015 onwards. The route will operate during the summer season only.
The airline expects to carry around 6,000 passengers on the new route in the first summer of operation.
Easyjet’s Head of Northern Ireland, said: “Split has a rich cultural heritage along with an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants and shops which are sure to make it a popular destination.”
Belfast-Split is the 10th new route to be announced from Belfast International this year.
Uel Hoey added: “We are delighted that easyJet are spreading their network reach from Northern Ireland to include Croatia. Traditionally Croatian destinations have been extremely popular with Northern Ireland travellers and are now witnessing a significant renaissance in demand.
“Split is a beautiful destination combining landscape, activities, history and religious interest. Moreover, as with the launch of Reykjavik, easyJet’s service from Belfast to Split will be the only regular direct air link available to this fantastic destination from the island of Ireland.”
