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. A spokesperson for City of Derry Airport stated that BMI flights, BM1501 and BM1507 scheduled to depart City of Derry Airport to London Stansted on Friday, July 6, 2018 were cancelled. "Apologies for any inconvenience caused to passengers," the spokesperson added.
