Collapsed airline Flybe has announced it will return to the skies next month.
The regional carrier will operate up to 530 flights per week on 23 routes, serving airports including Belfast City, Birmingham, East Midlands, Glasgow, Heathrow and Leeds Bradford.
Flights will resume on April 13.
Flybe was pushed into administration with the loss of 2,400 jobs in March 2020 as the Covid-19 pandemic devastated large parts of the travel market.

Before it went bust it flew most of the UK domestic routes between airports outside of London.
His business and assets were bought by Thyme Opco, which is linked to US hedge fund Cyrus Capital, in April 2021.
Thyme Opco was renamed Flybe Limited.
The airline will be based at Birmingham Airport.
Chief Executive Dave Pfluger said: “We are pleased to be up for sale and to be operational next month.
“We believe our new flights will benefit everyone who wants cheap fares and more flights to go on vacation and visit loved ones.
“Our new network will also ensure better regional connectivity within the UK and between different regions of the UK and EU.”
He added: “The new Flybe team has worked tirelessly over the past year to create an airline that delivers on price, schedule and choice.”
