Sinn Féin Foyle MP Elisha McCallion has welcomed the news that Loganair are to take over the Derry to London Stansted route.

The Foyle MP said: 

“I welcome confirmation that Loganair will take over the City of Derry Airport to London Stansted route. 

“There was huge concern in the city after flybmi entered administration – with the uncertainties of Brexit cited as one of the reasons. 

“This is an important route for those who regularly commute to London for business, employment and tourism. 

“The revival of this service will help restore confidence in City of Derry Airport as a vital transport hub for the north west and support opportunities to explore new routes.” Críoch/Ends—
