Loganair is a Scottish regional airline, serving 29 destinations across the UK, Republic of Ireland and Norway.
Loganair offers travelers a wide route network attracting buinses and leisure. Founded in 1962 in Glasgow, it has flown under franchise agreements with both British Airways and Flybe, but will fly under its own brand from 1st September 2017. Six of the Scottish routes served by Loganair are supported by external funding. The routes, namely Glasgow to Barra, Campbeltown, Tiree, Stornoway to Benbecula, Dundee to Stansted and the Inter Orkney Isles, are designated Public Service Obligation (PSO) routes.
A PSO, one of only two state aid mechanisms within EU legislation for air services, is imposed on routes which are not commercially viable and are essential to counter the remoteness of the regions.
Loganair has a fleet of 28 aircraft and operates five different types to meet the varied requirements of regional flying within the UK: The Saab 340, Dornier 328 and Saab 2000.
Loganair introduced the 50-seat Saab 2000 aircraft to its fleet in 2014 and it operates on core markets including Shetland/Aberdeen and Stornoway/Glasgow. The aircraft capacity is also best suited to provide frequency, with most islands having a day return schedule.
Loganair's aircraft are available for private passenger and freight charter.
Loganair's Frequent Flyer Program
Loganair offers a Spend & Fly availability checker which allows passengers to verify the number of seats available by route and date on Flybe flights.
Loganair also offers in the event of a death in your immediate family, an unexpected critical medical situation, or the need to visit an immediate family member receiving treatment as an in-patient in a mainland hospital or hospice, you may find that you need to arrange urgent air travel at short notice, and thus do not have the time to qualify for an advance purchase discounted fare.
To be eligible for Compassionate Fares and Compassionate Flexibility, Loganair will consider an event of recent bereavement to an Immediate Family member, an Immediate Family member suffering a recent, unexpected critical medical situation, or an Immediate Family member attending a hospital or hospice as an in-patient.
Baggage on Loganair
Checked baggage on Loganair is dependent on the fare category that is purchased.
All in passengers can carry up to 30kg in a single bag free of charge and Just fly and Get more passengers can carry up to 20kg in a single bag free of charge.
If you have baggage in excess of your free allowance, it will only be accepted if space is available at a charge of a small fee.
The maximum any 1 bag at 30kgs. Any additional pieces of luggage will be charged at £10.
Charges may vary and will be applied at the prevailing rate when payment is made.
Until August 2017, Loganair operates scheduled services under a Flybe franchise in mainland Scotland and Orkney, Shetland and the Western Isles. It also provides services for the night mail flights on behalf of Royal Mail. In addition to its main base at Glasgow, the airline has hubs at Edinburgh Airport, Inverness Airport, Dundee Airport and Aberdeen Airport.
The company holds a United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority Type A Operating Licence. It is permitted to carry passengers, cargo and mail on aircraft with 20 or more seats.
In June 2005, Loganair was awarded a contract from the Irish Government to operate a daily return service from Knock, County Mayo to Dublin. This public service obligation (PSO) route operated for a period of three years as British Airways, with effect from 22 July 2005. The operation ceased in July 2008, the contract having been lost to Aer Arann. The airline also bought routes from Citiexpress in March 2004. It flew BA's BAe ATPs on them until 28 May 2005, when further Saab 340 aircraft were purchased to replace them.
Until October 2008 Loganair was a British Airways franchisee, operating flights sold through BA using BA flight codes. Loganair's inter-island operations between the Orkney and Shetland Islands carried out using Britten-Norman Islanders was removed from the franchise agreement in 2004.
The flights have since been marketed under Loganair's own name, rather than British Airways'. Loganair became a franchise airline of Flybe, operating in the Flybe colours. Flights are also operated under a codeshare agreement with British Airways connecting flights from Scotland to London.

Loganair to receive new aircraft next year?
Loganair wants to add at least two new Embraer Regional Jets to its fleet by the end of the first half of next year. The airline is keen to begin operating services to central Europe but currently doesn't have the fleet capacity to do so. Managing Director of Loganair, Jonathon Hinkles, commented that there are a number of big airports throughout Europe that aren't being flown to from Glasgow and the people of southern Scotland want better connectivity from their major airport. If Loganair orders these two new aircraft, its entire fleet will consist of over 30 aircraft.

LOGANAIR COMMENCES DONEGAL TO GLASGOW SERVICES
Air services operated by Loganair between Donegal and Glasgow have officially taken off for the first time since 2015.
Customers will be able to travel three times per week all year round on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
Additional summer flights will operate on Wednesdays between June 27 and September 19 and Saturdays from 26 May to 3 November plus a Saturday service at Easter from March 31 until April 14.
Loganair has a long history on the route stretching back almost 30 years after it began serving the two regions in the early 1990s.
Kay Ryan, Loganair’s commercial director, said: “Glasgow to Donegal is a hugely important airlink for both Ireland and Scotland, offering an excellent connection for passengers.
“The previous incumbent of the route completed its final trip yesterday so we’re ensuring a total continuation of service without break.
“Bookings have so far been really positive and the route is proving popular with families, football fans and holiday makers.
“Customers can also connect to an extensive network of onward Loganair destinations out of Glasgow Airport using a single ticket, acting as a gateway to Scotland’s Highlands and Islands – including Stornoway, Islay, Campbeltown, Tiree and Benbecula.”
Anne Bonner, Donegal Airport’s managing director, said: “The board, management and staff of Donegal Airport are delighted to welcome Loganair and see the Glasgow flights continue without any break in the service. I have no doubt that the loyal customers using the Donegal-Glasgow flights over the years will continue to support and strengthen the route.”
She added “The airline and airport marketing teams in association with the tourism and business development authorities also commit to strengthen activities targeting new markets to grow passenger numbers on the route for the greater good of Donegal and the North West Region”
Paul White, business development manager at Glasgow Airport, said: “Loganair’s decision to reintroduce a regular service to Donegal fantastic news.
“The stunning costal-based county remains a popular destination and the launch of this service is both fantastic news for our passengers and indeed the thousands of visitors who travel to Scotland from Ireland each year.”

Loganair to operate Carlisle services with Stobart Group
Loganair, the Glasgow-headquartered airline, is to run new services under a partnership with logistics giant Stobart Group.
The tie-up will see the carrier operating services from the newly-renamed Carlisle Lake District Airport to London Southend – both owned by Stobart – as well as flights from Carlisle to Dublin and Belfast City.
Loganair will operate eight flights per day across the working week and a total of 12 at weekends, connecting Cumbria and the Lake District, which receives some 45 million visitors per year, to the three destinations.
The routes to and from Carlisle have already gone on sale with all services commencing on 4 June.
Jonathan Hinkles, managing director of Loganair, said: “We’re both delighted and honoured to become the first operator at the new Carlisle Lake District Airport, and this partnership with Stobart will open up Loganair’s services to a whole new range of customers.
“With frequent services on each of the three routes, we have every confidence that these new flights will transform access to and from the Lake District for many thousands of customers each year, as well as serving areas like the south-west of Scotland.
“This move highlights Loganair’s growing reputation as an airline that consistently looks for ways to develop into new markets and we are confident that its brand will travel well south of the border.”
Stobart Group’s head of corporate projects Kate Willard added: “Stobart Group is committed to delivering a brilliant air travel experience across the UK and Ireland. We are therefore delighted to be announcing flights with Loganair connecting London, Belfast and Dublin with Carlisle and the Lake District.
“There is huge demand from London, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to visit Carlisle, which is home to major businesses and serves as a gateway to the Lake District, two world heritage sites and south Scotland.”
Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership has committed almost £5 million to the development of the airport, and the services will be the first commercial and business flights from Carlisle since 1993.
Graham Haywood, Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership director, said: “Carlisle Lake District A

Loganair expands summer 18 schedule
The Scottish regional carrier is also introducing the first non-stop flights linking Manchester with the three main Scottish island groups – Shetland, Orkney and the Western Isles. This will be Orkney’s first non-stop direct transport link to England.
Weekly services to Stornoway and Sumburgh will join twice-weekly flights from Manchester to Kirkwall in the airline’s first summer of flying under its own brand.
The most remote island community in the UK will also gain a summer air link. Fair Isle, where the airfield is run by the National Trust for Scotland, will receive two flights a week on Mondays and Fridays from Kirkwall between May 25 and October 5, with onward connections to Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Inverness, Manchester and Norwich via other Loganair services.
New flights will also operate over the summer between Norwich and Inverness – non-stop from June to September every Monday and Friday; from Norwich to the Isle of Man to meet demand over the TT Races; and from Glasgow to Guernsey, where a new Saturday service will be introduced from May 26 to September 15 – Scotland’s only direct link to the second largest of the Channel Islands.
Managing director Jonathan Hinkles said: “We’re delighted to be launching a brand new range of services for summer 2018 to cement Loganair’s position as one of the UK’s fastest growing and popular airlines.
“Since we started flying under our own name once again from 1 September – after nearly three decades of services under franchise agreements with other airlines – we’ve seen a tremendous response to Loganair’s strong Scottish identity and the friendly service that we offer, which includes.a free 20kg baggage allowance, free in-flight refreshments and a commitment to no credit or debit card payment surcharges.”

Loganair set to launch new direct flight to Manchester
Loganair’s Jonathan Hinkles said, while it had been a “challenging” three months since their split from Flybe, the company’s 2018 summer schedule was a “statement of intent”.
Loganair is set to launch Orkney’s first ever non-stop link to England, with a new route from Kirkwall to Manchester set to commence next summer.
Part of the company’s summer 2018 schedule, managing director Jonathan Hinkles described the 90-minute transport link to England as a “historic milestone”, with tickets set to go on sale next Tuesday.
Commencing on June 22, the route will be operated by a 31-seat Dornier 328 aircraft twice per week, on Mondays and Fridays, until September 3.
The company also announced that they will be maintaining Orkney’s direct links to Norway next summer, with weekly non-stop services from Kirkwall to Bergen on Saturdays, set to operate from June 23 to August 18.
Flying to the Gateway to the Fjords will also become easier for Orkney passengers, while services to Fair Isle will operate from May to October.
Managing director Jonathan Hinkles said: “It’s always a pleasure to introduce new routes, whether they be year-round or seasonal, and these links are great news for both leisure and business travellers.
“Announcing Orkney’s first direct transport link to England is a historic milestone and something we’re incredibly proud to unveil. We have also extended the operating schedule to Fair Isle as a direct result of successful bookings when it was launched last year and are pleased to support Orkney’s traditional links with Norway by offering our Bergen flights once again.”
“Our first three months as a “flying solo” airline, have been challenging, but they’ve also been exciting, and our summer schedule is a statement of intent for the year ahead. As Scotland’s Airline, Loganair is strengthening its network and adding more seats and more flights than ever before.”

Loganair capacity up 50% as airline begins Manchester operations
A 50% boost in frequency has been introduced by Loganair as the Scottish airline starts operating on its own right on the Manchester-Glasgow route.
The Scottish carrier, which has operated Flybe’s services between the two cities for eight years, terminated its franchise agreement with the regional airline last week.
Loganair will now be running up to six flights a day on the route using Saab-340 aircraft in red, black and white livery.
The airline will also be serving Norwich from Manchester on a service that was also previously operated under the Flybe franchise pact.
Flights to Glasgow will operate 28 times a week, while Norwich will see 16 services a week.
Loganair will offer onward connections from Glasgow to the Scottish Highlands and Islands.
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.

Loganair takes on former partner Flybe
Loganair officially marked flying solo again by launching two new services on 1 September.
Self-proclaimed Scotland’s airline, which terminated its franchise agreement with the Flybe last week launched up to six services a day using its Saab 340 fleet on the Manchester (MAN) to Glasgow (GLA) route.
Kay Ryan, Loganair’s Commercial Director said: “We’ve been operating this route between Glasgow and the Northwest 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.” Indeed Flybe will still operate the 312-kilometre pair 21 times weekly according to OAG schedules.
In addition to the 28 times weekly Glasgow service, Loganair will continue to provide flights to Norwich (16 times weekly) from Manchester, which it also previously operated under the Flybe franchise.
