Loganair takes over bmi Scotland Yorkshire route

Following the announcement by bmi that it is withdrawing its long-standing service between Glasgow and Leeds Bradford airports, Loganair is stepping in with a Flybe franchise operation from Tuesday 8 May.  It will also introduce a Sunday evening service in each direction from 2 September, marking the return of weekend schedules after a gap of several years.  For the time being bmi continues with Edinburgh to Leeds Bradford.  New flight timings facilitate connections via Glasgow to points including Stornoway, Kirkwall, Sumburgh, Tiree, Barra and Benbecula.

Loganair’s Chief Operating Officer Jonathan Hinkles said: “We are delighted to be announcing the launch of services between these two airports.  Loganair has every confidence that its successful formula will re-vitalise this crucial air service between Scotland and West Yorkshire and help to ensure that business links between these regions are maintained and developed.”
Loganair will use a 34-seat Saab 340B pressurised turboprop aircraft on the route.  It operates its scheduled services under a franchise agreement with Flybe, and offers over 500 flights every week within, to and from Scotland. www.flybe.com
