City of Derry Airport issues apology to passengers after BMI flights to London cancelled on Friday

The City of Derry Airport has apologised to passengers who were affected by the cancellation of a number of BMI flights from Derry to London on Friday. The Derry News has been contacted by a number of people who were affected by the cancellation, one of whom had been due to attend a birthday party in London. The passenger said that people had boarded the 7am flight, and had to sit on the plane for two hours before being informed that it would not be taking off due to a technical issue, which also affected a later flight to London from Derry the same day. Commenting, the woman said that passengers were later told that the problem related to a part for the aircraft.
