Loganair celebrates growth at Southampton with 350,000th customer

Loganair has celebrated the carriage of its 350,000th customer through Southampton Airport.


The UK’s largest regional airline served up a free surprise flight to Rachel Emmerson to commemorate the milestone as she prepared to depart to Glasgow.

Rachel serves in the Armed Forces as Commanding Officer of Glasgow and Strathclyde Universities’ Officer Training Corps and regularly flies to Southampton to visit her partner Colin.


Rachel said:

“I wasn’t expecting the call that I would be the milestone passenger, but I’m a frequent flyer on this route, so I’ll certainly be redeeming this voucher soon on my next visit to Southampton. This service works well for me, and it’s an added bonus that Loganair has signed the Armed Forces Covenant.”


Loganair flies from Southampton to five destinations, including Aberdeen and Stornoway, on a one-stop same-aircraft service. From July, Loganair will increase the number of flights from Southampton to Newcastle up to three per day, Glasgow up to five per day and Edinburgh up to five per day, offering a staggering amount of choice for customers wishing to access Scotland and the North-East of England.


Christopher Tibbett, Head of Airline Relations & Marketing at Southampton Airport, said:

“It’s really exciting to see Loganair hit yet another passenger milestone in Southampton. Only having started operations from the airport in 2020, Loganair has grown rapidly, providing ever-greater choice of fast and convenient options for South Coast travellers to reach all corners of the UK.”


Luke Lovegrove, Loganair’s Chief Commercial Officer, said:

“We are expecting a bumper summer at Southampton this year, so it’s great to see such a fantastic milestone reached. Southampton offers a great alternative to the London airports and has excellent connectivity to the wider region, with the train station literally just meters from the terminal building.

Rachel is one of many thousands of valued customers who are taking advantage of our connections in the region, and we look forward to welcoming her onboard another of our high-frequency services between Southampton and Glasgow in the future.”


Reservations for Southampton flights can be made at or via travel agents. All Loganair flights include 15kg luggage allowance as standard, and advance booking is encouraged to benefit from the best value fares. Frequent Loganair customers can also take advantage of the airline’s loyalty programme - Clan Loganair.
