DESTINATION offerings at City of Derry Airport continue to grow with the take-off of the first ski programme to operate from the airport with Topflight in January, the new year-round Ryanair Birmingham service recently announced to launch in April and the return of the Faro summer service with Travel Solutions available from May. The Airport has also now announced the return of Joe Walsh Tours’ pilgrimages to Lourdes for Summer 2024.

The first ski programme in history to operate from City of Derry Airport took to the skies on Saturday 27th January with school ski specialists, Topflight for Schools. Staff and student groups from secondary schools across the Northwest travelling on the inaugural service to Verona were treated to some complimentary hospitality to celebrate the occasion at the Airport.

It’s a privilege that we can now offer our local school children access to such a fantastic life experience, especially from the convenience of their local Airport."
