Loganair to link Isle of Man with both London Heathrow and London City Airports

Loganair, the UK’s largest regional airline, has announced that it will launch services from the Isle of Man to both London City and London Heathrow airports from next month, marking a major step forward for the Isle of Man’s post-pandemic air connectivity.

New services will commence from the Isle of Man to London City from April 19, initially offering a daily flight (except Saturdays) before gearing up to two flights each weekday from Tuesday, May 3.    From that date, the new schedule of morning and evening flights will offer a day-return capability in each direction, plus a flight in each direction on Sunday evenings.

Services linking the Isle of Man with London Heathrow will commence from Tuesday May 3, with a daily service designed to offer excellent connections with Loganair’s major partner airlines including British Airways to a wide range of destinations worldwide, including key points in Europe, North America and South Africa.

Both the London City and Heathrow routes will be flown under Loganair’s codeshare agreement with British Airways, and tickets for the new flights will go on sale next week.

The new services will be flown by Loganair’s Isle of Man-based team of pilots, cabin crew and engineers.   The airline now has over 30 staff based at Ronaldsway who also support existing Loganair routes to Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh.

Further Isle of Man-based pilots and cabin crew have joined Loganair this week – many formerly employed by Flybe and Stobart Air before the collapse of both airlines – to commence their training onto the 72-seat ATR 72-600 aircraft deployed by Loganair on its IOM routes.  These are the most environmentally efficient regional aircraft, combining best-in-class fuel burn and carbon emissions performance with excellent on-board comfort levels for customers.

Regional connectivity, and regular, reliable connections to the heart of London has never been more important, and we look forward to working with partners to both promote the service to businesses and to passengers who are planning their next staycation.’

Loganair to add more flights from Aberdeen

Loganair has made this announcement:

On the back of its 60th anniversary celebrations last week, Scotland’s airline Loganair has announced an expansion at Aberdeen International Airport with the introduction of a new route to Oslo and the creation of over 20 new jobs.

The year-round link between Aberdeen and the Norwegian capital will be restored by Loganair this summer, commencing from June 13, 2022. It will fly up to six weekly flights, with a daily service Sunday – Friday, in each direction with its 49-seat Embraer 145 Regional Jet aircraft.

Weekday flights will leave Aberdeen at 08:30, arriving in Oslo at 11:05 local time.    Westbound flights will leave Oslo at 11:40 local time and arrive in Aberdeen at 12:20.    Sunday flights will depart Aberdeen at the later time of 13:20 and leave Oslo at 16:30 local time, enabling both leisure and business travellers to make the most of their weekend.

Loganair is the largest airline operator at Aberdeen International Airport and with today’s announcement, it will serve no fewer than 14 destinations from its Aberdeen hub, while it expects to add more as demand for air travel continues to recover from the pandemic. The airline’s extensive scheduled service network at Aberdeen accompanies a range of contract operations for major customers in the oil & gas and logistics sectors.

To support this summer’s expansion and its emergence from the pandemic, Loganair has recruited more pilots, cabin crew and engineers to work at its Aberdeen base. It directly employs over 120 staff at the airport and supports a further 100 indirect jobs.

The training program for the new recruits is well under way, welcoming more than 20 new pilots and cabin crew to Loganair’s operation – many of whom were formerly employed at Aberdeen by Flybe prior to that airline’s collapse nearly two years ago.

British Airways and Loganair have today announced a major expansion of their codeshare agreement, offering more choice and connectivity for customers traveling across the UK.

The expansion to 18 new routes will now give British Airways’ customers access to 38 of Loganair’s UK routes, meaning that customers can book onward connections from destinations across the airline’s route network, or point to point travel in the UK more easily through British Airways’ website.

Routes now available to book include:

  • Aberdeen to Belfast City, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, and Southampton
  • City of Derry to London and Liverpool
  • Cornwall Airport Newquay to Manchester
  • Exeter to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle
  • Isle of Man to Birmingham, Edinburgh and Manchester
  • Inverness to Birmingham
  • Norwich to Aberdeen and Edinburgh
  • Teesside to Southampton

British Airways’ customers traveling from Aberdeen or the Isle of Man to Manchester will also now be able to connect onto British Airways’ code share flights on other carriers, including oneworld partners, from the north-west hub. Destinations include New York, Barbados and Orlando, allowing customers to book a single ticket with assured connections.

The news of a codeshare expansion between the two carriers comes as Loganair celebrates its 60th birthday, making it the oldest UK airline still operating under its original name.

Loganair’s history:

Our journey through the years…

On the 1st of February, we marked our 60th anniversary! In 1962, we had just one aircraft – now we have more than 40, going to destinations across Europe, Scandinavia and the British Isles. Our experience is long and our expertise outstanding, so you can expect only the friendliest and most professional service on every journey you make with us. Keep on reading to find out more about our journey!

 

 

1962

Loganair’s founder Willie Logan, owner of a construction company, bought air taxi firm Capital Services which he had used to travel the country between building sites. Following the takeover, the renamed Loganair was based in Renfrew with a Piper Aztec as the sole aircraft.

1963

In October, Loganair’s first scheduled flight took off between Dundee and Turnhouse Airport, Edinburgh, to coincide with the requirements of contractors who were working on the Tay Road Bridge. Another service was also set up for the business personnel travelling between the two cities, on an on-demand basis.

1964

Loganair won the contract to deliver newspapers to Stornoway. The Piper Aztec pilot would help unload the papers and reload the aircraft with freight for the return leg, mainly Harris Tweed.

1967

Loganair commenced the Orkney Inter Isles service which connected mainland Kirkwall to the smaller islands. In the same year, a supplementary air ambulance contract was also won.

The Britten Norman Islander aircraft, the latest version of which still operates the Inter-Isles service, was to be key in the Loganair ambulance operation, however the first ambulance flight was operated by Piper Aztec.

1968

In October the capital share of Loganair was acquired by the National Commercial Bank of Scotland, leading to the introduction of mobile banks for islanders on Lewis.

1976

A new airstrip was built on Fair Isle to replace an old strip from World War 2. Loganair flew Shetland ponies to Fair Isle after 80 years of their absence on the island.

1980

Loganair introduced two Embraer 110 aircraft to the fleet. The increased speed, range and passenger comfort allowed Loganair to serve off shore oil companies.

1983

In December, Loganair was acquired by British Midland Airways. Following the partnership, the airline’s route map expanded throughout Scotland, England and Northern Ireland.

1994

Loganair became a British Airways franchise partner. The agreement between the two airlines meant the airline would operate on behalf of British Airways on Loganair’s highland routes and British Airways routes Glasgow to Aberdeen, Glasgow to Sumburgh via Inverness and Kirkwall and Glasgow to Belfast.

1997

Loganair was part of a management buyout led by Chairman Scott Grier. Five Britten- Norman Islanders operated the Shetland and the Orkney Inter-Isle services as Loganair routes. The Twin Otter was introduced on services from Glasgow to Tiree, Barra and Campbeltown.

2004

By this time, Loganair had acquired all the Scottish routes previously operated by British Airways CitiExpress. This meant that Loganair now operated services between; Glasgow – Stornoway, Glasgow – Benbecula, Aberdeen – Sumburgh and Aberdeen – Kirkwall.

2008

The British Airways franchise agreement came to an end and Loganair took this opportunity to enter into a new franchise agreement with Flybe. The long association with British Airways continued though via a codeshare arrangement, with Loganair’s flights marketed as connecting BA flights to London and beyond.

2011

In July, Loganair acquired Cambridge-based Suckling Airways, bringing Dornier 328 aircraft into its fleet. The Dorniers gave operational and commercial options that weren’t available on Saab aircraft due to superior speed and range.

2017

Time for Loganair to fly once again under its own name as the franchise agreement with Flybe ended. The airline started flying “solo” from 1st September 2017. This was the first time in 25 years that Loganair had flown under its own brand, requiring a brand re-launch, new website and reservations systems.

A new identity was inspired by the Scottish tartan pattern that flew with British Airways 20 years ago and the Loganair Tartan is registered as number 11744 in the Scottish Register of Tartans.

2019

The route network has grown with now over 70 routes to and from; Scotland, England, the Channel Islands, Belgium, Isle of Man, Norway, Ireland, Denmark and Germany. New interline arrangements have been agreed with some of the world’s leading airlines to further enhance connectivity for our customers.

Loganair has also introduced Embraer jets to the fleet to enhance the destination offering and improve customer experience.

In 2019, Loganair took the title of SPAA Domestic Airline of the year, voted for by the Scottish Travel Industry.

2020

After the demise of Flybe in March 2020, Loganair took the opportunity to start operating some of Flybe’s former routes expanding the route network and working with new airports such as Newquay, Southampton, Birmingham, Exeter and Belfast City.

This increase in destinations and routes mean that Loganair is now the largest operator of domestic routes in the Uk and also the largest operator at Aberdeen Airport.

A fleet renewal program was put in place replacing Loganair’s Dornier 328’s with ATR 42’s and 72’s increasing the capacity on many of Loganair’s core routes.

2022

Loganair celebrates its 60th anniversary!

In its 60 years, Loganair has grown to be the largest regional airline in the UK, as well as serving multiple international destinations including Denmark and Norway. To mark the occasion, we also strengthened our codeshare relationship with British Airways, enhancing connectivity in the UK and around the world.

Did you know that Loganair is the longest established airline in the UK operating under its original name?

NAC delivers one ATR 72-600 to Loganair on lease, its 9th ATR

Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) has announced it has delivered one ATR 72-600, msn 1257, to Loganair on a long-term operating lease.

The 72-seat ATR, which will be registered G-LMTC and named “Clan Cairns” in service with Loganair, will become the airline’s ninth ATR and form part of its continuing fleet renewal program.

Loganair increases Isle of Man services

Loganair has announced its Summer 2021 schedule from the Isle of Man – stepping up services on existing routes, restoring routes suspended during the pandemic and adding three completely new ones.

The airline – which has maintained the Isle of Man’s only passenger air services throughout the COVID-19 pandemic – is responding to demands from customers keen to plan and book ahead for summer travel, in anticipation of COVID-19 vaccines enabling air travel to take place safely and widely once again.

Services to London Heathrow, which started on December 1, 202 as Loganair’s first permanently scheduled service to the UK’s biggest airport after it secured runway slots for the IOM, will increase to double daily flights from March 28, 2021.

Flights to Manchester will increase to two daily from April 1, 2021 and from July 1, 2021 services to Manchester and Liverpool will have a further increase in flight frequency, with Manchester stepping up to four per day and Liverpool to three per day.

Birmingham services, cancelled last year following the demise of previous operator Flybe, will re-start on April 1, 2021 with a four- times a week service which then increases to daily from  May 22, 2021.    Edinburgh services will re-start with three flights each week from April, building to four from May 25, 2021.

New routes from the Isle of Man are to Southampton, with three fights a week from May 26 – ideal for onward connections to the Channel Islands with Loganair’s partner airline Blue Islands, and for those meeting cruise sailings; to Belfast City four times a week from April 1 increasing to six times weekly from May 24; and a seasonal non-stop service linking the Isle of Man with Jersey, flying every Saturday from May 22 until late September.

Loganair is also planning to increase the numbers of seats available across all routes by introducing larger ATR 72 turboprop aircraft, which can carry up to 70 people per flight.  The airline, now the UK’s largest regional operator, employs pilots and cabin crew based in the Isle of Man, and contracts the maintenance of its aircraft to local company M&A Technical Services, which is based at Ronaldsway Airport.

Loganair takes over 16 routes formerly flown by Flybe

Loganair, Scotland’s Airline, has reacted to the closure of Flybe by announcing plans to safeguard UK regional connectivity by taking up 16 routes formerly flown by Flybe. The airline will be adding nearly 400 new flights each week and has opened a special recruitment line for former Flybe employees seeking to continuing their aviation careers with Loganair.

The 16 routes – from existing Loganair base airports at Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Newcastle – will be launched progressively over the next four months. Flights on the first and largest group of these key air routes will commence as early as Monday, March 16.

The routes are:

[Aircraft – ERJ is an Embraer Regional Jet with 49 or 37 seats; AT7 is an ATR72 with 70 seats; SF3 is a Saab 340 with 33 seats.]

Loganair’s Chief Executive Jonathan Hinkles said:

“The collapse of a long-standing airline like Flybe marks a desperately sad day, especially for the airline’s dedicated team of employees and for customers facing disruption to their journeys. By stepping in quickly with a comprehensive plan, Loganair is aiming to maintain essential air connectivity within the UK regions to keep customers flying, and to offer new employment to former Flybe staff members who are facing an uncertain future today.”

Customers formerly booked on Flybe services on the same routes will need to make new bookings at http://www.loganair.co.uk, and obtain a refund via their payment card provider for tickets booked with Flybe. In common with all other airlines, Loganair has no access to Flybe systems or customer data to be able to facilitate re-bookings.

Loganair has partnership arrangements with several international airlines including Emirates, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Air France, Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines and United Airlines. Customers who held a Flybe booking including onward travel with one of these airlines, or as part of a package holiday, should contact the travel agent or airline with whom the booking was made to arrange for re-booking onto the new Loganair flights on equivalent routes.

The addition of 16 former Flybe routes to Loganair’s network will see the airline operate up to 400 new services each week, cementing its position as the UK’s fourth largest airline by volume of flights. Additional 70-seat ATR 72 turboprop aircraft will join Loganair’s fleet over the coming weeks to service the new routes, alongside the existing 44-strong fleet of turboprop and Embraer Regional Jet aircraft. The ATR aircraft have the lowest carbon emissions per passenger of any regional aircraft.

Loganair will be recruiting for additional pilots, cabin crew and engineers to be based at Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle airports to support the expansion. It is expected that over 100 new positions will be created across the four locations, and Loganair will be prioritising applications from former Flybe staff for all of these roles. There will also be a small number of new head office support roles.

The safeguarding of these routes by Loganair will also help former Flybe ground handling agents and airport operators at locations such as Southampton and Exeter to preserve employment in their businesses.

Chief Executive Jonathan Hinkles concluded:

“The plan represents the outcome of several weeks of behind-the-scenes contingency planning work, during which we’ve evaluated many routes and aircraft. It’s critical to the continued success of our own airline that we refrain from over-expansion, and that our growth can be delivered within our operational and financial means. I am confident that the plans being announced today are robust and sustainable, enabling former Flybe customers to benefit from Loganair’s high standards of customer service and on-time performance on a range of new routes, with a strong emphasis on those to and from our Scottish heartlands.”

NAC delivers a ATR 72-500F to Loganair

Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) has confirmed that it has delivered one ATR 72-500, msn 570, to Loganair on lease. 

Prior to delivery, the aircraft has been converted to freighter configuration by NAC, providing Loganair with a 75m3 cubic capacity / 7.5t payload aircraft to operate on behalf of one of its major customers. This represents the first ATR aircraft to join Loganair’s fleet.

From Loganair:

The story of Loganair’s “Spirit of Sandy”:

By Jonathan Hinkles.

It was a flat calm day in Kirkwall – one of the most magical places in the world on such days – and so I could clearly hear the chatter between the two customers behind me as we all walked towards one of Loganair’s Saab 340s bound for Glasgow.

“Aye, they’ve not spelled that right.”

“No – you’d think they’d know better after all these years they’ve flown tae Orkney.”

I looked around uneasily to see what might have prompted this terribly un-Orcadian expression of opprobrium.  Had we committed some cardinal sin in the painting of our aircraft like missing the “f” out of Cathay Pacific?   Thankfully not.  I saw where my fellow passengers were pointing, and suddenly twigged.

Our Saab 340 aircraft are all named after the destinations to which we fly – so you could be boarding the Spirit of Lewis or the Spirit of Islay for your flight.

The one exception – that we were just about to board – is the Spirit of Sandy. Our Orcadian customers clearly thought we’d missed the “a” from the island of Sanday.  [We’ve flown there since 1967, albeit not with our Saab 340 aircraft which I think would be a shock to the islanders and our wonderful pilots alike if we tried.]

Although any of the Loganair team could have set our customers straight, it struck me that we’d never really told the story of the Spirit of Sandy – and so today of all days, I think it’s probably high time that we do.

No alt text provided for this image

On 21 October 2014, we lost one of our most fantastic colleagues, Captain Sandy Torrance. Barely a month earlier, Sandy had gone home early from work – which he loved and where he was equally loved by all his colleagues – complaining of a headache.

It sadly turned out to be an inoperable brain tumour, which took Sandy’s life just five weeks after that shocking diagnosis.

Sandy is fondly remembered by all who flew with him, and had that rare ability to enliven everyone around him.  You simply knew that a working day with Sandy would be a good day, no matter what happened or whatever challenges you would face.

As we were establishing Loganair’s awards programme three years ago, we were struggling to define that distinctive, cheerful and inclusive member of the team whom we wanted to be able to recognise.  Uniquely, for such a potentially divisive topic, we got there very quickly.  The Spirit of Sandy summed it up perfectly.  What better way to name our award – and one of our aircraft too?

It’s thus been our great privilege at each of the three Loganair team awards ceremonies held so far to welcome Theresa, Sandy’s wife, to personally present the Spirit of Sandy award to the recipients – Captain Eddie Watt in 2017, cabin crew member Colin Hough in 2018 and Captain Simon Carroll in 2019.   It’s a high point of the evening for all of us, and I hope and trust it will continue long into the future.

I didn’t have chance to explain all this in Kirkwall to our two customers chatting away behind me without needlessly delaying our departure – something of which Sandy would never have approved.    Yet five years on, I’m delighted that we can keep his legacy alive with our annual award and keep the Spirit of Sandy plying our routes around Scotland (and a bit further beyond, too).  It’s the least we can do, and is a fitting tribute to a much-missed friend and colleague.

Thanks for reading.

Carlisle now has airline service again after over 25 years

"Spirit of Lewis"

Carlisle Lake District Airport is once again a commercial airline passenger service airport.

The airport launched commercial and business services from Carlisle for the first time in more than 25 years with Loganair on Thursday, July 4.

Above Photo: Michael Kelly. SAAB 340B ES-NSD (msn 171) “Spirit of Carlisle” is pictured at Dublin heading back to Carlisle.  It is leased from Estonian operator NyxAir.

Flights now connect Carlisle and the Lake District, which attracts 45 million visitors per year, with the South East of England (London Southend Airport), Northern Ireland (Belfast City Airport) and the Republic of Ireland (Dublin Airport) from Thursday July 4 thanks to Carlisle Lake District Airport’s partnership with Loganair, Scotland’s Airline.

Carlisle Lake District Airport is the gateway to the Lake District National Park, the Pennines, South West Scotland and Border regions, located just six miles east of Carlisle City and the M6 (J43 or J44).

From Southend, Loganair has also commenced flights to Aberdeen and Glasgow in Scotland generally using Embraer 145s and the occasional SAAB 2000 and Embraer 135s.

Loganair to launch routes between East Midlands, Brussels and Inverness

First Embraer in the new livery

Loganair has announced it will commence scheduled services from East Midlands Airport, introducing two new routes to Brussels and Inverness, this autumn.

Starting on September 2, 2019 the airline will begin an early morning and afternoon rotation to Brussels between Monday and Thursday as well as afternoon services on Friday and Sunday. It will also provide six flights per week between East Midlands and Inverness, in the North East of Scotland.

Operated by Embraer jet aircraft and with a flight-time of only 1 hour and ten minutes, the airlink will offer a convenient gateway to Belgium’s capital city – which is also a centre onward rail travel to a wide range of European cities. A popular  destination for business passengers, the timetable has been created to enable a full day’s business on the continent, departing at 06:50 before returning to the UK via a well-timed 19:00 service.

Meanwhile the journey to Inverness takes one hour and 35 minutes, setting off at midday before returning to England at 14:00.

Previously operated by flybmi, services between Brussels and East Midlands ceased on February 16.

Loganair currently operates freight services from East Midlands Airport but this announcement marks the first time it has provided passengers flights from the region.
