Yet another transatlantic LCC...

Startup Fly Atlantic has announced plans to create an international hub at Belfast, NI and offer low-cost flights to the US starting in 2024.

Passengers flying from Belfast - vs. from Dublin or other airports in Ireland - would be eligible for pre-clearance of US customs and border controls prior to departure and so avoid delays at US destinations.

An initial fleet of 6 aircraft is planned, possibly Airbus A321LR or Boeing 737 MAX.

Similar plans have been launched before, and all have failed:

  • Skytrain LGW-JFK in 1970s
  • People Express LGW-EWR in 1980s
  • Flyglobespan BFS-YYZ 2003-2008
  • Norwegian BFS-Various in 2018
  • WOW Air KEF-Various in 2019
