We're Proud

Celebrating Difference, Together

To ensure we further develop an environment of openness and one free from prejudice for our colleagues and customers, we're engaging in further pride events across the UK for 2023, building on our support in 2022.

Any of our people can get involved so that we can celebrate our differences and encourage others to show their support for the LGBTQ+ community.

Northern Pride 2023

Following our successful 2022 Pride sponsorships in Scotland, in 2023, we were delighted to visit another key destination - Newcastle. Loganair proudly became the Official Airline Partner of Northern Pride, one of the biggest Pride celebrations across the UK.

Key achievements included:

  • A whole team of our own colleagues helped to support the event, acting as much-needed volunteers for the weekend
  • We donated tickets for fundraising raffles to help keep the event accessible to all
  • We offered flight discounts from various UK cities to Newcastle to enhance access to the event from across the country
  • We also sponsored the event’s health and wellbeing zones, as this is another key pillar of Loganair’s Flying’s For All programme.

The 'Pride Jet'

As part of our commitment to supporting Northern Pride 2023, we unveiled the UK airline industry’s first-ever pride jet in June 2023.

Championed by our colleagues as a visual way to show our support for the LGBTQIA+ community, both in the workplace and in the communities we serve, this initiative publicly displays our commitment to creating an inclusive, safe and secure working environment for all our employees.

Our Embraer 145 (G-SAJE) was aptly named the ‘Pride Jet’ and has captured the interests of many plane spotters across the UK when in the air.

Shetland Pride 2022

We proudly supported Shetland's first Pride event in July 2023. 

A vital issue for the Shetland Pride organisers was to raise the profile of this important celebration of the LGBTQ+ community in the Isles and highlight that it's an inclusive event for all.

To assist with this aim, we

  • Supported the event by emailing our island customers and sponsored promotions to highlight the event.
  • Sponsored free "Getting Involved Raffles" to generate further interest in the event with opportunities for attendees and volunteers to win flights across our network - just for getting involved.

Hebridean Pride 2022

Like Shetland Pride, Hebridean Pride organisers told us that engagement from across the community and raising the event's profile was a key aim.

We therefore provided support to the Hebridean Pride event that was aligned with our support in Shetland by:

  • Reaching out to our island customers via email and sponsored promotions to highlight our support and activities.
  • Sponsoring "Getting Involved Raffles".
