Tweets of the day:
@BelfastAirport BREAKING: @Ryanair M O’ Leary tells CBI: If APD’s scrapped, we will X2 traffic @BelfastAirport in 12 mths to at least 2.2m probably 2.5m.
@Dwelliott “People are not going to fly to NI if they have to pay £13,” says Michael O’Leary, railing against APD @CBI_NI.
@Dwelliott Michael O’Leary says will double operations in NI if APD is removed. There. That’s it. Oh, and there’s a seat sale on.
@julianoneill Ryanair reckons NI residents account for 2m passenger journeys out of Dublin Airport a year – much greater than DAA or DfE stats suggest.
@MargaretCan Says every single passenger subsidised to tune of £1 each on Derry to Stansted route during Jan, leading to decision to reduce frequency.
@MargaretCan Forecast fall in Ryanair passengers from Derry next year from 230,000 to 100,000.
@newsmulg Derry airport can only survive in a low tax scenario…ending APD.
@SymonRoss O’Leary says Brexit uncertainty means he can’t risk putting more Ryanair investment in UK/NI in next 2 yrs while politicians ‘screw around’.
