flybmi celebrates successful first year between London Stansted and Derry

Wed 18 Apr 2018
Twice daily flights from just £45 one way

flybmi marks the first anniversary of its successful London Stansted to Derry route on 2 May 2018 and is celebrating by offering flights from just £45 one way in May. The service, which was the fastest selling in the airline’s history before it had even started, has gone from strength to strength over the past year.

flybmi commenced the route from Stansted to Derry last year, offering two flights daily. This has allowed business travellers to make the round trip to and from London or Derry in a day, without the need for costly overnight stays, and flybmi believes it to have been a key factor in increasing the route’s popularity.

Commenting on the success, Jochen Schnadt, Chief Commercial Officer, of flybmi said: “The Stansted – Derry route is our first departure from a London airport so we are delighted with its strong performance. It is a great example of our strategic focus on key trade and business flight links, and how our aim to provide a quality service at convenient times is fuelling customer demand. The North West region of Ireland is currently undergoing a sustained period of investment and economic growth, and the success of the route in its first year demonstrates how vital it is for businesses in the region to be well connected to the UK capital.”

An economic, creative and cultural hub, Derry is Northern Ireland’s second city and was named the 2013 UK City of Culture thanks to its winning combination of rich cultural heritage and vibrant social scene. The only completely walled city in Ireland and the UK, it is a bustling, youthful city with great restaurants, bars, museums and more. It is also the gateway to the wider North West and its spectacular coastline, which is regularly used for big film productions including the latest Star Wars franchise and Game of Thrones.

flybmi is offering flights from London Stansted to Derry from £45 one way in May 2018. All customers flying with flybmi will enjoy the airline’s great value fares and quality service. All fares are inclusive of 23kg of hold luggage, allocated seating, complimentary in-flight drinks and snacks and speedy 30-minute check-ins.
