City of Derry Airport Bolsters Links with Scottish Capital


The city of Derry Airport will welcome a new route to Edinburgh Airport this summer thanks to the UK’s largest regional airline, Loganair.

The new 55-minute direct service between Londonderry and Edinburgh launches 17th May 2022 and will initially operate three times weekly on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays. During the peak summer months, frequency will increase with additional flights on Thursdays and Saturdays.

Operated using a 49-seat Embraer 145 regional jet, the route will see fares starting from £53.99 one-way. 

Kay Ryan, Loganair’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “Keeping people connected is a key driver for us and launching this route further strengthens our network across the UK while developing our partnerships with each airport.

“Offering greater choice, we now operate services from City of Derry to Edinburgh, Glasgow, London Stanstead and Liverpool, with further onward connections to the Highlands and Islands, benefiting business and leisure travellers alike.”

It’s important that we provide sustainable choice for passengers who need and want to travel whether that be for business or leisure, and we look forward to working with Loganair to identify further opportunities.”

Ryanair to start new service between Derry and Manchester

Europe’s No.1 hated airline Ryanair has announced a new route for Winter 2021 between City of Derry airport and Manchester. The budget carrier will fly the route three times a week and will consider adding an additional rotation if demand requires using a Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. 

Ryanair’s Director of Commercial, Jason Mc Guinness, said: "We are delighted to add this new route from Derry to Manchester."

The airline is deliberately trying to mislead the public by renaming the Boeing 737 MAX as Boeing 737 8 2 Gamechanger aircraft in its publicity and distance itself from the two fatal crashes of flawed designed MAX jets that resulted in an almost two-year grounding.  

A spokesperson for the City of Derry Airport said "We’re very pleased to welcome Ryanair back to the Northwest, once again connecting our people and businesses. Manchester is a hugely popular destination from our region, and giving people more options to fly from their doorstep is fantastic"

Welcome back......City of Derry Airport – Liverpool flights resume

A few Beatles’ lyrics were being quoted yesterday morning to celebrate the official launch of the eagerly awaited new Loganair service between City of Derry Airport (CODA) and Liverpool John Lennon Airport.


The Glasgow-based company – now the UK’s largest regional airline – recently stepped in to re-establish the popular UK domestic route following Ryanair’s decision to step back as the carrier.

Loganair is initially offering flights four days a week on Monday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. However, this will increase to a daily service from late June – the perfect escape for a weekend city break following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions. Fares start at £44.99 one way with hand baggage and hold luggage allowance included as well as refreshments served on board.

The air link between CODA and Liverpool is just the ticket for visitors who love everything the former cities of culture have to offer ranging from music legends to Premier League football.

The iconic Abbey Road image of The Fab Four was even re-enacted on the tarmac at CODA during the celebrations to mark the launch of the new Loganair service this morning.
