Celebrating the launch of Loganair’s Aberdeen service was Chris Ion, Aviation Development Executive at Newcastle Airport; Kay Ryan, Commercial Director Loganair and Richard Knight OBE, COO Newcastle Airport. Knight said of the launch: “Loganair has shown its commitment to the airport and the North East travelling public by preventing the loss of services to Brussels and Stavanger earlier this year. The airline is now adding even more choice with its new route to Aberdeen, supporting the buoyant offshore sectors as well as connecting on to the likes of Sumburgh and Kirkwall in the Highlands and Islands”.
- Loganair on 01 September increased its Newcastle (NCL) operation with the launch of flights to Aberdeen (ABZ), operated by the carrier’s Embraer 135/145 fleet. The 241-kilometre route, designed to meet substantial demand from the offshore oil and gas sector, will see three daily flights on Monday – Thursday, two on Fridays and one Sunday service. Eastern Airways – on behalf of FlyBe – also serves the route a total of 15 times per week.
