 @JohnLStrickland #Ryanair tops 100m pax in a year for 2015 & hits 91% December load factor #airlines.

@jordanmoates David O’Brien from Ryanair making point of how Air Passenger Duty makes flights from Belfast more costly.

@newsmulg @BelfastAirport @Ryanair says need help from NI exec to fix APD and assist industry.

@newsmulg Other routes could be five, or fewer. Said could give commitments if Stormont canned APD @Ryanair. 

@newsmulg We will deploy aircraft, million passengers regardless. But routes dependent on cost. @Ryanair David O’Brien.

@newsmulg @Ryanair says KLM supported with 500k. It’s after its own assistance.

@newsmulg @Ryanair @BelfastAirport says missed opportunity to not let air industry grow. APD big feature of press launch.

@newsmulg @Ryanair David O’Brien says no plans to alter Derry airport schedule.

@Oliver__Clark  Ryanair will seek to operate 5 routes from Belfast but these will depend on governments help over APD says David O’Brien.
