February 13, 2019 / GOV.UK
People in Derry-Londonderry and its surrounding areas will continue to benefit from direct flights to London, the Transport Secretary announced today. Speaking in the House of Commons earlier, Chris Grayling confirmed that the UK government, in partnership with the Department for the Economy in Northern Ireland, will subsidise the route between City of Derry Airport and London Stansted. This provides an important link between Northern Ireland and London, enabling daily round trips to help boost trade and tourism.
