Mighty horns of cake plenty!! Paul White, Glasgow Airport’s Business Development Manager and Kay Ryan, Loganair’s Commercial Director aren’t wearing hi-viz jackets on the apron, but at least they have protective head gear on as they celebrate the start of Scotland’s airline’s new route from Glasgow to Bergen.
- Loganair operated its first service between Glasgow (GLA) and the Norwegian city of Bergen (BGO) on 5 May. Operating a twice-weekly (Mondays and Fridays) summer service until 28 August, the regional carrier, known as Scotland’s airline, will connect the two cities for the first time. The route will be operated by a 50-seat Saab 2000. Paul White, Glasgow Airport’s Business Development Manager, said: “This is fantastic news from Loganair which is one of our longest serving airline partners. We are continually working to expand our route network and this is the first time Glasgow will have had a direct, scheduled service to Norway’s second city. I have no doubt Bergen will prove to be a huge draw for leisure travellers and we’re looking forward to working closely with Loganair to ensure the success of the route.” Loganair MD Jonathan Hinkles said: “It’s fantastic to be able to launch a new route from our main hub airport, connecting the West of Scotland with Norway’s second largest city. By offering the twice-weekly connection, customers can visit for a long-weekend or an extended stay of one week or 10 days.” There is no competition on this city pair.
