In April, a New Ryanair Route will Launch from Derry to Birmingham


It has been revealed that a new direct Ryanair route from Derry to Birmingham will launch in April.

“We are thrilled to expand our route map with Ryanair and provide a much-needed service for our local catchment area across Derry City and Strabane, the Causeway Coast and Glens, Donegal and beyond,” said Steve Frazer, Managing Director of City of Derry Airport, about the new Birmingham service.

“We are thrilled that Ryanair will be taking to the skies to provide this. A direct connection to Birmingham has been in demand for a number of years, particularly for those commuting to work, study, or visit family and friends.” Beginning in April 2024, Ryanair will run a new year-round route from CoDA to Birmingham twice a week.

Mr. Frazer stated: “We hope this new service will help bring new inbound investment opportunities and a new tourism market from the UK midlands area into the Walled City and surrounding areas as part of our long-term commitment to support and develop the Northwest economy and tourism sector.”

The announcement comes after the airport entered a new era this month with the launch of a sold-out Topflight school ski program to Verona, Joe Walsh Tours summer pilgrimages to Lourdes, and increased frequency of summer holidays to Faro and Palma for 2024. The development also comes after CoDA launched new international connectivity via London Heathrow to 119 locations in 56 countries.
