Tweets of the day:

@AlastairDalton So the apparent advance in Ryanair’s transatlantic plans was fiction, @FT. I predict it will stay that way until an aircraft deal is agreed.

@BelfastAirport Additional @BalkanHolidays flights to Bourgas, Bulgaria will depart Sundays 21 June-2 Aug ’15 in addition to a Monday flight May-Sept.

@grahamck63 @julianoneill we are going to win our market back despite all the obstacles and APD in our way if we dont bad for NI jobs and economy.

@Mark_J_Henry “The future is bright, the future is orange… meaning @easyJet”! Uel Hoey of @BelfastAirport jokes at #tourismsummit 🙂

@Mark_J_Henry  The big opportunity to grown air access into NI is from continental Europe, Uel Hoey of Belfast International Airport tells #tourismsummit.

@PubsofUlster @UelHoey of @BelfastAirport stresses importance of direct flights & abolish APD – We need an air passenger strategy. 

@starflyergold Oh dear I’m booked on something called Ryanair. Let’s say this is pure for reference and research.
