Loganair to operate extra flights during ferry drydock period

Loganair has announced that it will operate an extra 56 flights between Aberdeen and Sumburgh during February and March when the NorthLink ferries are in drydock.

The lunchtime flights on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between 13th February and 30th March mean an extra 1,848 seats will be available during the six-week period.

The airline, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, has pledged to offer as many low-fare seats as possible on the extra services.

Jonathan Hinkles, Loganair’s chief operating officer, said: “The ability to react quickly to challenging situations has been one of the hallmarks of Loganair’s 50 years of service in Scotland.  

“These temporary cuts to Shetland’s ferry service will clearly affect many passengers’ travel plans and so we’re putting an extra aircraft into service to provide these additional flights between Sumburgh and Aberdeen during the ferries’ overhaul programme to offer competitively-priced alternative means of travel.”
