Loganair Reinstates Derry to Liverpool Route
Loganair have announced that they will return to the City of Derry to Liverpool route from 24th May. The decision comes as Ryanair has pulled back from the route. Tickets for the new Loganair service will be on sale from 9th March on the airline’s website. Loganair will initially offer flights on Monday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Weekday flights will leave the City of Derry at 10.50 arriving at Liverpool at 11.50, and return from Liverpool at 12.20 arriving at City of Derry at 13.20. The frequency of flights will increase to a daily service from late June. The service between Glasgow and the City of Derry will resume on 5th April and will also increase to a daily service in June.
This new route follows close on the heels of confirmation by the UK’s Department for Transport of continued funding for the City of Derry to Stansted PSO route.
Speaking on the announcement of the new route, Loganair’s Chief Executive Jonathan Hinkles said, “Frequent air links are essential for so many aspects of working and family life, even as we work to re-build and recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. Loganair already serves both City of Derry and Liverpool airports, and when the opportunity arose for us to connect these two important destinations in our network following another airline’s withdrawal, we were only too pleased to step in to safeguard these connections. Loganair’s ability to grow at the City of Derry is in no small part thanks to the exemplary reputation for reliability and service established by our locally-based team. I’m most grateful to all of them for maintaining our London services without interruption over the difficult last 12 months. It’s wonderful to be able to recognise their superb efforts today by re-doubling our commitment to the City of Derry’s air links.”
