Travel Advice: 21-23 July

We have been advised by Highlands & Islands Airports Ltd, the publicly-owned operator of 11 airports in Scotland, that its Air Traffic Control officers will be engaged in strike action between 21 and 23 July, with full day stoppages at six HIAL airports impacting different airports on different days in that time frame.

As a result, Loganair is making changes to its flying programme to include cancellation of all services scheduled at each airport on the affected dates – 21 July at Inverness, 22 July at Sumburgh and Kirkwall and 23 July at Stornoway, Benbecula and Dundee.   We are also adding some extra services ahead of and after the strike dates to help customers unable to travel on their intended dates to re-arrange their travel plans.

The changes – with a total of 74 flight cancellations over three days – will inevitably impact on our customers.   We sincerely regret that this is the case, yet the disruption is an inevitable consequence of the ongoing industrial action by the Air Traffic Control officers.

If you are booked on an affected flight, you will be able to change your booking without charge to travel on any alternative Loganair flight with seat availability within seven days of the cancellation.  You can also adjust your outward or return journey at no charge to help to rearrange your entire travel itinerary – moving your whole trip earlier or later – should you wish.   You can rebook online via via the “Manage my Booking” capability.   If you prefer, please identify the alternative flights on which you wish to travel via and call our Customer Contact Centre on 0344 800 2855 to action the changes to your booking.    If you elect not to travel, you are also entitled to a full refund of your Loganair flights if you prefer.

On behalf of Loganair, we can only apologise for the disruption to our customers’ travel plans.   Having now taken steps to cancel flights and assist customers to re-arrange their travel plans, flights will not be reinstated or reverted to their original schedules even if the industrial action is subsequently called off ahead of the planned dates.
