Sinn Féin Foyle MLA Karen Mullan has welcomed the announcement by Loganair that they will begin flying from Derry to Glasgow, following on from Ryanair’s decision to scrap the route in October 2018.
Karen Mullan said:
“The announcement by Loganair that they will commence a flight from Derry to Glasgow in October is welcome news for travellers.
“Hundreds of people travel from Derry to Glasgow on a weekly basis to study, work and for leisure. The decision by Ryanair to scrap the route would have created a gap, I am pleased that Loganair have taken up the route.
“Hopefully this move will encourage more airlines and travel companies to look at Derry as a destination and also help build and expand the north west transport network, tourist industry and attract more inward investment.”
