McCarthy: Suspension of US flight route could damage business

Alliance Regional Development spokesperson, Kieran McCarthy MLA, has expressed his concern after United Airlines announced they were suspending their route between Belfast and New York between 6th January and 11thMarch next year.

Kieran McCarthy MLA said: “It is disappointing that United Airlines will be suspending this route for a short period of time. It has been vital in attracting investment from North America.

“This decision could harm our economy. I hope that the airline will look to maintain the long term future of this route.

“I also hope that United Airlines will help those passengers who have already booked flights during this period.”
