A £7million support package for City of Derry Airport will secure jobs and provide further employment, according to Foyle MLA Gary Middleton.
The DUP representative was commenting after the Executive announced this week £2.5million for route development and £4.5million capital investment in partnership with Derry and Strabane District Council towards providing jobs and training opportunities.
Mr Middleton said: “This money will go some way to securing jobs and providing further employment for the area, which will be a significant boost to the local economy.
“Airports and good infrastructure are key factors in attracting business and provide better connectivity, improving and investing in these areas is great news for the North-West.
“The package from the Executive will help deliver economic prosperity to the North-West and I am delighted that the Executive are committed to growing the Northern Ireland economy.”
