Loganair has stepped in to secure five key air routes from Aberdeen to Bristol, Oslo and Esbjerg as well as Newcastle to Brussels and Stavanger, following the unfortunate news that flybmi is set to appoint administrators.
These services will commence on 4 March and 25 March but wlll be on sale from Monday 18 February at www.loganair.co.uk and through local or appointed travel agents.
Loganair has also expressed interest in the Derry to Stansted PSO service, as they have an extensive track record as a PSO provider and knowledge of the Derry market given they already operate to Derry from Glasgow.
Jonathan Hinkles. Loganair Managing Director said:
“It’s always really sad to see an airline go out of business, and our thoughts are with all those affected – particularly staff members. We are evaluating flybmi’s wider network and assessing routes which align with Loganair’s distinct geographical area and overall strategic plans. We are also working on employment opportunities for pilots, cabin crew and engineering support staff to strengthen the Loganair team.”
