Loganair returned to operate the Glasgow to Donegal link on 25 March after a hiatus of just over three years. The Scottish carrier will serve the route three times per week all-year round, with additional seasonal services available on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Celebrating the launch of the new link in front of one of the carrier’s Saab 340s were Paul White, Business Development Manager, Glasgow Airport and Kay Ryan, Commercial Director, Loganair.
- Loganair commenced services between Glasgow (GLA) and Donegal (CFN) on 25 March, a route it previously served as recently as January 2015. It will operate the 262-kilometre sector three times per week, year-round, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Additional summer flights will operate on Wednesdays between 27 June and 19 September and on Saturdays from 26 May to 3 November. There will also be an additional Saturday service for the Easter holidays from March 31 until April 14. The airport pair will be operated with the airline’s Saab 340s and there is no direct competition after Aer Lingus’ regional arm, stopped serving the route on 24 March. “Glasgow to Donegal is a hugely important link for both Ireland and Scotland, offering an excellent connection for passengers,” said Kay Ryan, Commercial Director, Loganair. “The previous incumbent of the route completed its final trip yesterday so we’re ensuring a total continuation of service without break. Bookings have so far been really positive and the route is proving popular with families, football fans and holiday makers. Customers can also connect to an extensive network of onward Loganair destinations out of Glasgow Airport using a single ticket, acting as a gateway to Scotland’s Highlands and Islands – including Stornoway, Islay, Campbeltown, Tiree and Benbecula.” Anne Bonner, MD, Donegal Airport said: “The board, management and staff of Donegal Airport are delighted to welcome Loganair and see the Glasgow flights continue without any break in the service. I have no doubt that the loyal customers using the Donegal-Glasgow flights over the years will continue to support and strengthen the route.” Vote for Glasgow Airport’s cake in this week’s Cake of the Week Public Vote.
