Another regional boost for Loganair

Aberdeen and East Midlands airports have been celebrating after welcoming new jet routes from Loganair as the airline continues its regional expansion.

Services linking Aberdeen with Newcastle and Norwich began last weekend in competition with Eastern Airways, with East Midlands joining the club with new routes to Inverness and Brussels a day later. Flights are by 49-seat Embraer ERJ145.

On Aberdeen, Loganair commercial director Kay Ryan said: “We’re delighted to be further strengthening our hub here, complementing our existing network in the North East.

“We know our new routes from Newcastle and Norwich are important links for the offshore industry and we’re looking forward to delivering a frequent, dependable and rewarding service for those in the industry.”

On East Midlands, she added: “East Midlands is ideally positioned to provide easy access to major cities across six different counties and these links to Inverness and Brussels will be hugely beneficial to the region.”

Aberdeen International Airport managing director Steve Szalay added: “Loganair increasing its presence and capacity here helps solidify connectivity to the North East and East Anglia; some of the UK’s leading off-shore energy regions.”
