More flights added to Loganair schedule

Loganair is increasing the number of flights from Sumburgh to Glasgow and Edinburgh as part of the airline’s 2014/15 winter schedule.

Starting on Wednesday, the Sumburgh-Edinburgh route will continue on its summer pattern of three return flights a day on Mondays and Thursdays, as opposed to traditionally scaling down for the winter months. This increase will mean 30 weekly flights between Sumburgh and the capital.

In addition there is an additional Wednesday Sumburgh-Glasgow service, taking the total number of weekly flights to 20.

The extra Wednesday service leaves Glasgow at 10.45am and arrives at Sumburgh at 12.15pm, then leaves at 3.05pm and arrives back in Glasgow at 4.30pm.

Loganair said the timings would enhance connections from Leeds-Bradford and East Midlands airports to Shetland.

Chief operating officer Phil Preston said: “Additional frequency to and from Scotland’s major cities offers increased choice for our business and leisure passengers.

“The increased frequency from one of the country’s busiest airport should open up a number of different travel options with our franchise partner Flybe and … British Airways.”
