Mayor welcomes Derry to Glasgow service announcement

06 March 2018

The announcement today that regional operators Loganair is to operate a Glasgow to Derry route from City of Derry Airport has been welcomed by the Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council Cllr Maolíosa McHugh.

Loganair today confirmed that it is to operate a Glasgow to Derry air route following the recent announcement by Ryanair to discontinue the route and replace it with a flight to Edinburgh.

Mayor McHugh said: “I am delighted that there will continue to be an air link between Glasgow and Derry as I know it’s a very popular route. The two cities have very strong cultural and historic links and it is important that these close connections are retained,” he said.

The Mayor added that he was particularly pleased that the new route would be operated by Loganair, a regional carrier with a long history and strong working relationship with City of Derry Airport, for over 40 years.

“This announcement is particularly significant considering the fact that the Airport has worked with Loganair since they first served in the city in 1979. We are delighted to welcome Loganair back to the airport and operate this very successful service to our customers,” he added.

The service will operate five days per week and lead-in fares will begin at £49.99 each way including a 20kg complimentary baggage allowance and will commence from Sunday 28 October. Tickets can be booked online at www.loganair.co.uk.
