Loganair celebrates a month of London Heathrow operations

It is just a little over a month since Scotland's airline - which is actually one of the best UK regional carriers, launched its flights to and from London Heathrow,

The services from key regional airports, which are so often underserved by the airline industry are a significant upgrade in connectivity across the British Isles and can provide a lifeline for the business community as well as leisure passengers.

Since starting the services and the celebrations at Dundee Airport, Loganair has carried over 15,000 people from regional destinations to London's premier hub airport, many for the very first time.  This is a key ingredient in connecting the whole of the UK as well as enhancing Heathrow's attractiveness as a global hub. 

In recent times, there has also been a major enhancement to Heathrow's own connectivity to the city of London and beyond. The Elizabeth Line has made travel from west to east easier than ever, with a single train from Terminal 2 to Paddington, Oxford Street, Canary Wharf and right through to Shenfield in Essex. More than 150 million journeys have been taken across the Elizabeth line in its first year since opening on 24 May 2022, with around 600,000 journeys taking place on weekdays. Plus there is also the Heathrow Express, taking just  15 minutes to Paddington station.

Fly from the City of Derry, Isle of Man, Dundee, Sumburgh and Kirkwall to London Heathrow with Loganair.
