The launch of two new European destinations and first-time operations out of Newcastle were being celebrated by Loganair last week as the airline heralded the addition of three more routes to its network.
The carrier began services to Brussels and the Norwegian city of Stavanger from Newcastle while north of the border the first flights between Glasgow and Dusseldorf took off. Loganair also officially opened its Newcastle base, its second outside Scotland after Norwich.
The early-morning service to Brussels marked the airline’s inaugural service from Newcastle Airport, touching down in the Belgian city 1h and 25min later. An Embraer 145 then departed at 13:10, arriving in Stavanger 15:30 local.
Air links to the two European cities were previously operated by flybmi, which went into administration on 16 February, prompting Loganair to step in to secure the routes.
The carrier is providing early-morning double-daily rotations between the Northeast and Brussels Monday to Thursday and two evening departures on Fridays and Sundays. Stavanger is served six times a week on weekdays and Sundays.
Dusseldorf is Loganair’s first destination in continental Europe from Glasgow. The route supports important cultural and business links between the west of Scotland and the North Rhine-Westphalia region.
