Derry launch by bmi

A new service between Stansted and City of Derry Airport has been launched by bmi regional. The latest in a host of new routes for the airline, it offers twice daily rotations every day except Saturdays, when there is one flight each way. 

Chief commercial officer Jochen Schnadt said: “This important new route, our first to and from Northern Ireland, connects business travellers from the capital and East Anglia to north-west Ireland, with convenient timetables making it easy to do the round-trip in a day.

“Given Derry’s recent and sustained period of economic growth, significant investment in new jobs and the various future growth projects, we are positive the enhanced double-daily connectivity our new service offers will generate additional activity in the market.

“It has become one of our fastest selling route launches and we are very pleased with customer acceptance of our latest service. 

Stansted CEO Andrew Cowan said: “We’re delighted to welcome bmi regional to Stansted for the first time and look forward to working with it to support the vital and popular link to the City of Derry. 

All bmi regional fares include 23kg of hold luggage, allocated seating, free in-flight drinks and snacks and 30min check-in.
