Routes linking Edinburgh and Glasgow with East Midlands are being taken over at short notice by Loganair from Sunday 27 October following incumbent airline Flybe withdrawing its services.
Loganair said it had stepped in on the routes, used by more than 150,000 travellers a year, to maintain “vital connectivity” between Scotland and the Midlands for businesses as well as family links and tourism.
The move follows Loganair’s inaugural flight at East Midlands at the beginning of September when services to Brussels and Inverness took off, and its recent announcement of new East Midlands – Aberdeen services from 24 February next year (BTN 9 September).
Loganair CEO Jonathan Hinkles said the launch of the Edinburgh – East Midlands route would bring immediate benefits to passengers. A 49-seat Embraer 145 jet will be deployed to provide up to four services each way per weekday.
Glasgow services from 27 October will initially be two flights per weekday, again operated by 49-seat ERJ, plus weekend flights, with an upgrade early in the new year to three flights in each direction per weekday “as soon as operational resources permit”.
