Loganair Launch City of Derry to Edinburgh
On Tuesday Loganair launched its new service between Edinburgh and the City of Derry Airport. The new three times weekly service will operate on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday with additional services during the summer peak with a Thursday and Saturday flights.
Commenting on the new service, the Managing Director at the City of Derry Airport, Steve Frazer said, “A direct connection to Edinburgh has been greatly missed in recent months, particularly for those regularly commuting to study or work or visit family and friends, and we are delighted that Loganair has taken to the skies to provide this much-needed service. Edinburgh is an amazing destination and has something to offer for everyone on a leisure break – history and culture, family fun, unique food and drink experiences, nightlife – the options are endless! And of course, Edinburgh is a key UK business hub providing essential corporate connectivity for the North West region.”
Also commenting was the Chief Commercial Officer at Loganair, Kay Ryan who added, “We are committed to providing the City of Derry Airport with UK wide connectivity and we are thrilled to bring this new route to Edinburgh, building on our already established services across our network from Northern Ireland. The route is likely to be popular for leisure passengers visiting the wide range of cultural and historic sites of the Scottish capital, in addition to the hospitality and retail offerings, while students and business travellers can benefit from the new quick connection three days per week. We look forward to welcoming passengers from the City of Derry Airport onboard this new service.”
