Two new international routes linking Edinburgh with Hanover five times a week and Esbjerg three times a week are being introduced by Loganair in its summer 2020 schedule, along with a number of service upgrades.
The airline is also introducing a larger aircraft on the Newcastle – Aberdeen route next Monday, 13 January, just four months since launching the service, and is moving the Public Service Obligation (PSO) Dundee – Stansted service to London City Airport from 29 March.
The new Edinburgh – Hanover jet service will operate year-round on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, with a summer Saturday services. Edinburgh – Esbjerg will operate three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
Service upgrades include larger ATR72-600 aircraft with 70 seats on key routes to Orkney and Shetland from Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
On the Newcastle upgrade, Loganair says a 49-seat Embraer E145 jet will take over morning and evening services on the route, increasing seat capacity by 21% and ensuring more customers can get a seat on their preferred flight.
The airline launched services on 1 September and says latest data published by the UK Civil Aviation Authority shows passenger numbers have increased by more than 200% since then, confirming its belief “more customers would use a reliable service”.
