Loganair seeks to expand by taking on 16 former Flybe routes

The regional airline Loganair, owned by the same people who owned FlyBMI has reacted to the collapse of Flybe by announcing ambitions plans to take on up to 16 routes the Exeter based airline used to operate.

If the 'Scottish' airline is successful in taking on those routes it would mean an additional 400 flights each week for the company and would be a dramatic increase in operational needs, which many in the industry believe Loganair would be hard placed to provide.

The 16 new routes are from existing Loganair base airports at Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Newcastle and will be launched progressively over the next three months. The airline says the majority of these key air routes will commence as early as next week.

Loganair Chief Executive, Jonathan Hinkles, Said: “The collapse of a long-standing airline like Flybe marks a desperately sad day, especially for the airline’s dedicated team of employees and for customers facing disruption to their journeys. By stepping in so quickly with a comprehensive plan, Loganair is aiming to maintain essential air connectivity within the UK regions to keep customers flying...I am confident that the plans being announced today are robust and sustainable, enabling former Flybe customers to benefit from Loganair’s high standards of customer service and on-time performance on a range of new routes"
