Ferguson welcomes new Derry to Manchester flight

Sinn Féin MLA Ciara Ferguson has welcomed confirmation that a new Derry to Manchester airline service will be launched later this year.

The Foyle MLA said:

“I welcome news that airline Ryanair will launch a new Derry to Manchester service later this year with three weekly flights. 

“After an extremely challenging 18 months for air travel due to the pandemic, this is a boost for the local airport. 

“This flight will ensure direct access to Manchester for workers, families and students and help continue the airport’s role as a gateway to Derry and the north west.” Críoch/Ends
