- Loganair has made it possible for passengers to once again travel non-stop between Edinburgh (EDI) and the Isle of Man (IOM). On 26 May the carrier began four times weekly flights using a mix of Dornier 328s and Saab 2000s on the 222-kilometre route. Frequency will reduce to two flights per week when the winter season starts at the end of October. The route was last served by Flybe in 2013. Loganair will operate under its franchise agreement with Flybe until 31 August. After that Loganair becomes an independent carrier and is branding itself as Scotland’s Airline. Jonathan Hinkles, Loganair’s Managing Director, said: “It’s fantastic to resume services between Edinburgh and the Isle of Man, a route which should appeal to both business and leisure passengers. The enhanced timetable includes weekday services, expanding the number of options available for travellers when selecting the duration of trips.”
