City of Derry Airport are delighted to welcome on board.. TopFlight for Schools, the award-winning ski specialist who will be launching their School Ski Program for the North-West in January 2024.  Flights will operate from January to March and fly directly to Verona.

At a recent event, City of Derry Airport and TopFlight for Schools hosted over 35 group leaders at the airport on the 29th of November. The night consisted of giving Group Leaders from schools across the region a tour of the airport to experience the convenience and accessibility from car park to gate and demonstrating why City of Derry is the number 1 airport in Northern Ireland especially with a group of school children in tow!

The event brought together schools from Omagh, Enniskillen, Limavady, Donegal, and of course the City, this new programme will help to reduce school costs and travel time by flying from their local airport and was welcomed by the Group Leaders.  A winning combination for all!
