Ryanair will no longer fly from Derry to Faro and London Stansted from next April, it's been confirmed today.

The carrier will continue to operate five weekly services to Glasgow and two weekly services to Liverpool, however.

Bosses at the local facility say there are no fears over the long term future of the airport and that an application for a Public Service Obligation (PSO) route to London is at an advanced stage and that they are hopeful this will be in place by next Spring.
