Loganair Suspends City of Derry Airport – Manchester Route
Scottish airline Loganair is cutting its daily City of Derry Airport to Manchester Airport route with effect from 5th January. The announcement comes less than six months after Loganair launched the route. A number of flights will operate over the Easter period but will not restart on a regular basis until May. The airline has blamed a slump in demand for the service.
“We apologise for inconvenience to anyone who has already booked travel during this seasonal stop in the service,” Loganair’s commercial director Kay Ryan said.
“Our forecasts indicate that bookings will be low over the post-New Year period, so we’ve taken the decision to take a break on the route from January 5 until May 21, with the exception of some flights at Easter.”
Loganair said customers who had already booked flights would be contacted and offered a full refund or a transfer to Manchester from Belfast International or Belfast City airports.
