New Route announced for City of Derry Airport‏

14 January, 2009

Sinn Féin Councillor Gerry MacLochlainn has welcomed the announcement by Ryanair of a new flight to Alicante from the City of Derry Airport.

Councillor MacLochlainn stated,

"The announcement this morning by Ryanair of a new route to Alicante is good for the airport and good for the people of the North West.

"This route will be popular with holiday makers heading to the South of Spain but we also hope that it will attract visitors to our region to enhance the tourist industry here.

"I hope that this first European holiday route is the first of many that can be accommodated at the City of Derry Airport and believe that the airport can become a major economic driver for the region." ENDS
