Ryanair is to reconnect City of Derry Airport to Birmingham operating year round twice weekly on Wednesdays and Sundays using Ryanair UK AOC operated 189 seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft, effective from 3 April 2024. Ryanair previously operated the route up to November 2014.

City of Derry Airport Managing Director Steve Frazer, said “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. 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, and we are delighted that Ryanair will be taking to the skies to provide this.  As part of our long-term commitment to support and develop the Northwest economy and tourism sector, 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.”
