George Best Belfast City Airport has created an e-learning programme for travel agents in partnership with Online Travel Training.

The course centres on updates and developments at the airport, including its route network, airline partners, car parks and facilities.

Ellie McGimpsey, aviation development manager, said: “The past six months have had a substantial impact on the travel industry as a whole and undoubtedly brought changes within all our organisations.

“Whilst air traffic movements at Belfast City Airport were halted during the pandemic, our commitment to establishing a robust, convenient route network and ensuring a safe airport experience for our customers did not, and there have been significant developments on both fronts.

“This free course with OTT will bring our travel partners, not just in Northern Ireland but the rest of the UK too, up to speed with the latest route announcements and airport news, and will offer agents the unmissable chance to upskill and increase knowledge around airline offerings, loyalty programmes and passenger products at Belfast City Airport.”

Travel professionals who complete the one-module course by November 1 will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win flights to anywhere on the UK route network from Belfast City Airport.
