The unique beach air service at Barra to continue

Loganair (Flybe) (Glasgow) will continue to operate its unique de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter service to the island of Barra in Scotland. The service is unique because the STOL aircraft lands on the beach and the timetable is variable due to the changing tides. In February the Western Isles Council voted to end its subsidy for the Barra to Benbecula leg of the Twin Otter service. The service was due to end on March 31. The move was designed to enhance service to Glasgow.

However the Scottish Government has now confirmed it will “enhance” flights between Barra and Glasgow for the summer season but said they have no further plans to change the number of flights during the rest of the year according to this report by the Stornoway Gazette. The unique “beach service” will continue.
