City of Derry Airport today confirmed that Ryanair will no longer operate a service to London or Faro from April 2017 and will also be scaling back their Liverpool service.
Last week City of Derry Airport published an In-Year 2016 Business Plan setting out the primary near term objectives for the Airport.
This plan also provided a comprehensive insight into the airport’s current operating environment and highlighted the key challenges facing the airport.
The In-Year 2016 Business plan acknowledged that the airport was involved in on-going discussions with its main route carrier Ryanair as well as discussions with a number of regional airlines but was unable to comment any further at that stage.
Today they have confirmed that discussions with its main route operator, Ryanair, regarding the Summer 2017 schedule have now concluded and that the programme for the period April 2017 – October 2017 has now been finalised.
It was confirmed today that from April 2017, Ryanair would operate five weekly services to Glasgow International and two weekly services to Liverpool from City of Derry Airport. Ryanair will no longer operate a London Stansted service or a Faro service from that date.
Between now and 25 March 2017 Ryanair will continue to operate:
• 6 weekly services to London Stansted
• 5 weekly services to Glasgow International and
• 5 weekly services to Liverpool.
