‘Airline administration a huge concern – but Derry flights must be saved’ – Duffy

1 Mins read

Commenting on news that airline flybmi has entered administration, Sinn Féin Councillor Sandra Duffy said:

“News that flybmi has entered administration is a huge concern, particularly for the economy in the North West as it operates daily flights to London from City of Derry Airport.

“One of the reasons cited by the airline is the uncertainty caused by Brexit – yet more evidence of the destruction and disruption that the DUP and the British government are prepared to cause to our economy with their reckless Brexit agenda.

“This will obviously have implications for the new public service obligation (PSO) flight between Derry and London as well as the new route to Manchester, all of which flybmi was due to operate.

“Of course, the loss of the airline does not mean the loss of the service and I have contacted the Chief Executive of Derry City & Strabane District Council to ensure every effort is made to find an alternative carrier as soon as possible so there is minimal disruption to this service.”
