What's wrong with turbo-props?
I'd pick the one that is cheapest / most convenient for your circumstances not forgetting to add in the cost in time & money of getting to the airport
AIrlines that fly are
Belfast City is 10 to 15 minutes from the City centre and the bus no 600 is £2 per person one way.
Belfast International is 30 to 40 minutes from the city centre and the bus no. 300 is £7 per person one way.
Both buses go from the Great Victoria Street bus station.
I'd take FlyBe from City airport. Also don't know what you mean about Turbo Props. It's only a very short 50 minute flight on either airline, Hardly enough time for an Airbus jet to get to cruising altitude
My preference would be Flybe. The planes may be small but it's only a short flight and their service is usually great. Also the City airport is less hassle to get to from the city centre.
It's not my intention to slight turboprop service :) I fly on turbo props occcasionally here in the States and recently had had a rather interesting "fly by the seat of your pants" turbo prop ride from Curacao to Aruba :) I was thinking more in terms about reliablity of service and that kinda thing - I don't want to go with a City Airport flight if they are notorious for poor service, cancellations, mechanical delays, etc.
No need to worry about that more than any other airline/airport. Flybe is one of the biggest airlines in the UK and I don't think they would be quite so popular if they kept cancelling their flights :-) It's more to do with the fact that the UK is rather small so there's really no need for massive jets to fly you from place to place. You'll see soon enough anyway - hope you enjoy your trip!
Made the reservations for flights so now working on tours :)
Do not worry about the flight, I have been on the Edinburgh flight myself, and various other flybe flights on the "turbo prop" and it's great, the planes are really comfy and also have nice leather seats.
Glad to hear as we are booked!
