Two new charter flights to Iceland and the Balkans have been added to City of Derry Airport's schedule for 2018, the 'Journal' can reveal.
Super Break, the Yorkshire-headquartered holiday firm, has announced passengers from the North will now be able to fly to Akureyri, a port town, in Northern Iceland, for the first time and that Eglinton will be acting as the airport of departure.
It's also announced a new flight from CoDA to 'Montenegro, Croatia and the Adriatic Coast.'
Fittingly this charter trip will take in the 'Pearl of the Adriatic' - Dubrovnik - which like Derry is also an 'Oak wood', when translated from the Croatian.
Katherine Scott from Super Break said: “We’re incredibly proud and excited to be launching our new chartered flight programme, providing holidaymakers from Norther Ireland with a brand-new selection of incredible travel experiences to choose from in 2018.
"We are committed to helping connect more holidaymakers to new locations on the continent and beyond, all from their local airport.”
Commercial and Marketing Manager for City of Derry Airport, Charlene Shongo added: “The airport is absolutely delighted to be working with Super Break to offer travellers a range of destination for 2018/19 – we have a fantastic Authentic Andalucian break to Seville, Montenegro, Croatia and the Adriatic Coast and Incredible Iceland.”
