COUNCILLORS are set to write to the Minister for Transport, Eamon Ryan, over the Donegal-Glasgow service form Donegal Airport.
The route is currently operated by Loganair but at the end of this current simmer season, on October 29, the airline will cease the service.
This summer, Loganair said the decision to withdraw the service was taken amid the hit of the Covid-19 pandemic and it was chasing instead to prioritise ‘key destinations’.
Sinn Féin Councillor John Sheamais Ó Fearraigh told this month’s meeting of the Glenties Municipal District that they should write to the Minister.
“People travel back and forth from Donegal to Glasgow, it’s a good service – and we need to retain it,” he said.
“We need to get a new service to Glasgow.”
Cllr Maire Therese Gallagher told the meeting that it was important that ‘previous connections’ were not lost.
“For local business in west Donegal and Donegal in general, it’s essential that we fight to maintain the service,” Cllr Gallagher said.Tags:
