Nonstop from Belfast to ...???

Jump to last reply

I’ll be working in Belfast in early March. After the event, I’ll have time off from Sunday afternoon until I fly out of Belfast the following Saturday morning. I’m trying to see if there are any European capitals I could fly to nonstop from Belfast. You’d think this wouldn’t be so hard to determine – but I’ve hit dead ends so far. FYI, my flights in and out of Belfast are being provided -- so I can't fly in or out of any other city.

We are hoping to fly to Rome, but all the flights require layovers that essentially turn it into a full day to get there – and another full day to return. It would probably be too late to leave Belfast on Sunday (March 6th) so we’d be looking at traveling all day Monday (March 7th). We’d have to return from Rome on a morning flight on Friday to be able to stay at an airport hotel Friday night and fly out of Belfast Saturday morning. That would only give us three days in Rome – and that’s an awful lot of travel for just three days.

I checked into taking a bus from Belfast to Dublin—where we could get cheap nonstop flights to Rome—and then, a bus back from Dublin to Belfast. But by the time we factor in getting to the bus stop and the almost 2-1/2 hour trip between Belfast & Dublin it’s not much of an improvement.

Is there an option I’m missing – or another destination that would be easier to get to? We’ve been doing this event for ten years so we’ve already thoroughly explored the U.K., and recent years have brought us to Amsterdam, Florence, Venice, and Paris.

Thanks!
