Loganair continues to expand its network after unveiling size routes to commence in 2020 – including new destinations and additional connections linking airports across its extensive route map.
The airline has announced:
- Glasgow to Cardiff – the first time it has connected the two cities
- Aberdeen to Haugesund – its first route from the South Western Norwegian airport and third from Norway
- Aberdeen to East Midlands – growing its presence at both airports after being welcomed as East Midland’s newest operator last week
- Aberdeen to Brussels – an optimised schedule via Newcastle to significantly reduce journey times compared to current travel options
- Newcastle to Bergen – the airline’s fourth service from the North East airport and third from Bergen
- Newcastle to Guernsey – a summer seasonal service to the popular Channel Island destination
Loganair now operates to a total of 36 destinations in seven countries, which includes more domestic options than any other carrier. All of the services will be operated by Embraer 145 or 135 jets, part of Loganair’s overall fleet of 45 aircraft, and will be year-round, with the exception of the seasonal summer link between Newcastle and Guernsey.
With a long history serving the oil and gas sector, Loganair offers customers holding Vantage Cards or valid offshore ID’s extra flexibility from the airline to help with changes in shifts patterns or weather that impacts upon connecting helicopter flights.
Across all its routes Loganair provides a complimentary baggage allowance, in-flight refreshments and the option to join Clan Loganair – the airline’s competitive reward programme for frequent flyers. Business customers can also opt for several different fare products, offering a range of flexibility as required.
Jonathan Hinkles, Loganair’s managing director said: “These new routes further expand the airline’s reach across both the UK and Northern Europe – taking our jets to new destinations while introducing additional connections between airports we already serve.
“The energy market offers a lot of potential and these routes ensure Newcastle and Aberdeen are connected with Bergen and Haugesund, which in combination with recently announced services from Norwich mean these key energy regions are now easily within reach of one and other as part of Loganair’s overall network.
