Loganair takes listeners behind the scenes with latest podcast series

Loganair, the UK's largest regional airline, has launched the latest episodes of its FlightLOG podcast series, peeling back the curtain on the inner workings of the recently awarded European Regional Airline of the Year.

The new episodes feature exclusive interviews with staff from key teams across Loganair, offering a unique glimpse into the airline’s operations as it continues to soar to new heights.


FlightLOG is available on all major streaming platforms and consists of four episodes, all presented by the renowned broadcaster John Mellis. Interviews feature exclusive conversations with Loganair's slots and scheduling teams, airports and accessibility staff, and training and engineering teams.

In the first episode, Loganair’s Head of Training, Captain Ronan Milne, discusses how he traded pies for the skies after leaving his family’s fifth-generation bakery to embark on a career in aviation with Loganair.


Ronan said:

“I switched to training about five and a half years ago and I just love it. I love teaching people things. It's my absolute passion.

I've been here for 20 years and the pleasure you get from teaching somebody and seeing them achieve something to a really high standard is just extremely rewarding.

You go home with a very good feeling. For me, that's absolutely what I love to do.”


Later episodes will tell the story of Loganair’s ground operations at some of its unique bases, the work of its cabin crews and the intricacies of the airline’s slots and scheduling responsibilities.


Luke Lovegrove, Loganair CCO, said:

“We wanted to offer our customers a rare glimpse behind the scenes and help listeners understand the complexities of operating commercial flights on some of Scotland’s most diverse routes.

If you’ve ever flown from Glasgow to Barra, you’ve probably thought to yourself – this is amazing – but not fully considered the planning that goes into landing a plane on a beach!

With this latest batch of shows, we’re giving you that insight, telling the story of how flights are scheduled, how they are maintained to keep them flying safely, what it takes to run a crew in our airports and what’s required to train our pilots.

It’s a fascinating look at the nuts and bolts of our airline, which I’m sure will open a few eyes and ears for customers and aviation fans in general.”
