Cheap flights from Belfast to New York

Good news! An entertainment system that has been available in the carrier's business cabins since early 2007 has now been extended to economy class across the whole Boeing 757 fleet.

Continental Airlines has extended the range of inflight entertainment options available to its passengers catching flights to New York from Belfast International airport.

New facilities that economy travellers can make use of include individual seat-back screens that offer a choice of up to 25 movies, 25 television shows and 50 CDs covering various music genres.

Barry Jackson, Continental's area sales manager for Northern Ireland, said: 'Passengers will find this new entertainment experience much more user-friendly.

'Our passengers in BusinessFirst really enjoy the new system and we are sure our economy class passengers will too.'

The system, which passengers can control themselves, also features 20 video games and a Berlitz World Traveler programme that teaches foreign languages.

Belfast International airport recently revealed that the Continental service to New York was proving popular with travellers accessing connections within the US, with Orlando, Las Vegas and Miami among the most popular onward destinations for leisure passengers.
