The re-opening of City Derry airport

The City of Derry Airport now re-opened the commercial flights.

The Airport Authority has worked over the weekend to complete the remedial works agreed with the British Civil Aviation Authority. It's said by Derry City Council on City of Derry airport to re-open by RTE News. Further more, the British Airways will operate the flights to Glasgow and Dublin.

On the last Friday, the City of Derry airport was forced to close at midnight because of safety concerns expressed by the UK's Civil Aviation Authority. All of the Ryanair flights to and from the airport has cancelled and British Airways has diverted its services to Belfast. This decision follows an inspection that the authority has identified problems such as poor runway drainage. So it was committed to maintaining the highest safety standards, the management said ( Derry airport closed over safety concerns by RTE News ).
