UUP MLA Danny Kinahan has said that the link to New York from the International Airport at Aldergrove must be safeguarded.

Mr Kinahan was speaking after United Airlines, who operate the route to Newark airport, announced their intention to suspend the service for nine weeks from January 6 until March 11 next year.

“The direct route to New York run by United Airlines is an essential economic corridor for Northern Ireland,” Mr Kinahan said.

He added: “That is why I am urging Ministers to do all they can to safeguard the one and only regular link we have with the United States of America.”
