Loganair expands flights network

Loganair will be expanding its flight network with the launch of three new routes

Loganair will be expanding its flight network with the launch of three new routes.

In a joint announcement with partner airline Flybe, the Scottish carrier said it would launch a new flight between Aberdeen and Cardiff in April.

Further flights will be launched in May linking Blackpool, the Isle of Man and Belfast.

David Harrison, Loganair’s chief executive, said he was "delighted" that the airline’s network was expanding.

"The new schedule which we’re announcing today provides additional connections that can only be good news for Scottish leisure and business travellers alike," he said.

The airlines are hoping to capitalise on the recession after it was predicted that more Brits could book domestic flights for their forthcoming summer holiday.

In addition to the new flights, Loganair will be increasing the frequency of flights from Inverness to Stornoway, Edinburgh to Sumburgh, Glasgow to Benbecula and Glasgow to the Isle of Man.

Loganair announced in November that it was reducing fares on its highlands and islands flights by an average of £4.
