Loganair adds more flights between isles and Glasgow

Loganair is introducing an extra two return flights between Shetland and Glasgow this winter, beginning in early November.

In addition to the existing daily flight between the isles and Glasgow, there will be a second flight on Mondays and Fridays. It will leave Glasgow at 10.45am, then return from Sumburgh at 3.20pm on both days.

The airline said it followed a “surge in advance bookings” on the route, while the times also tie in with connecting flights to Birmingham, Manchester, Southampton and the east Midlands.

Flights will be on sale from early next week, with the extra two flights commencing on Monday 4th November.

Earlier this year Loganair added more than 2,000 seats on its Shetland-Aberdeen service this autumn.

Its chief operating officer Phil Preston said the airline was “very pleased to be able to offer these additional services”.

“We continually monitor customer demand and endeavour to manage our schedule accordingly.”

HIAL managing director Inglis Lyon said the flights would “provide a welcome boost for inbound business…which in turn will help support economic development across the northern isles”.

    Good for them, so many people are finding the boat more expensive.
