The Belfast to Cork Manx2.com service will resume today, the chairman of the airline confirmed last night.
At Belfast City Airport Noel Hayes cut a sombre figure as he described yesterday as “the worst day of his aviation career and his life”.
Mr Hayes began by offering his condolences to the families of the bereaved, but vowed his airline would continue the Belfast to Cork route as usual today.
Visibly shaken he said: “I can honestly say this has been the worst day of my aviation career and the worst day of my life.
“It is a real tragedy and my heart really goes out to the families.
“I would like to thank the emergency services at Cork for their very speedy response today.
“The company is totally committed to finding out what the cause of the accident was today.”
He added: “Safety is always our prime concern, safety is under constant review.”
