Aer Arann new flight routes fail to take off

Aer Arann have shelved plans to operate new routes from City of Derry Airport.

Earlier this year the airline announced it would begin flights from Derry to Manchester and Edinburgh from the 20th of May.

However Aer Arran announced that the services were being suspended because demand for the routes had been very poor with less  than 10 bookings.

Passengers who have booked on the routes will receive full refunds.
