Loganair steps in to secure Glasgow to Derry air link thumbnailLoganair has announced that it will be providing a City of Derry to Glasgow route from October this year.

EAST Londonderry DUP Assembly member George Robinson MLA MBE has expressed relief that Loganair are to secure the Londonderry-Glasgow air route.
Ryanair announced last week that it was to discontinue the service in November this year but would be opening a route to Edinburgh in Winter 2018.
Said Mr Robinson: "This announcement is very welcome for everyone in the North West. The Glasgow route was popular for many reasons, including holiday, sport, family visits, so the news that it is to be saved is fantastic.
“It also means that an additional airline will operate from Londonderry and that we will have routes to both of Scotland's major cities. This type of connectivity is always welcome as it adds another selling point for the North West to attract investment and tourism.
“I look forward to seeing the route inaugurated in October, the day after Ryanair stops the route, so no loss of service should be experienced.
“The airport is not fully appreciated for its vital role in the local economy, and I hope that if people are travelling to Scotland, or making connecting flights in Stanstead or Liverpool, that they will consider using the current services from Londonderry," he concluded.
Loganair first served Derry in April 1979, becoming the first airline to operate to City of Derry Airport at the time.
