Loganair flies solo

Scottish airline Loganair has announced a 50% boost in frequency on its Manchester-Glasgow route after terminating its franchise agreement with regional airline Flybe last week.
The Scottish carrier has operated Flybe’s services between the two cities for the past eight years.

In addition to the six-a-day Glasgow service, Loganair will be providing flights to Norwich, which it also previously operated under the Flybe franchise agreement.

Flights to Glasgow will operate 28 times a week, while Norwich will see 16 services per week.
Loganair commercial director Kay Ryan said: “We’ve been operating this route between Glasgow and the North West for eight-years so we’re acutely aware of the requirements for an enhanced schedule.

“A lot of passengers might not have been aware of the Loganair brand as we flew under our previous franchise partner’s colours but the quality of service was wholly down to the hard work of our team.

“It’ll be the same aircraft, pilots and crew which will be expanding the number of flights available to passengers. We’ve got an extremely competitive offering compared to other carriers including flexible fares, complimentary baggage allowance and exemption from credit-card booking fees.

“We are extremely grateful to our customers for the tremendous support they are affording us, which is translating into very strong advance bookings.”
