Take off for Loganair’s Donegal to Glasgow service

Loganair, the UK's largest regional airline, marked a milestone at Donegal Airport this week as services between the Irish county and Glasgow were restored as part of the airline’s summer timetable.


The thrice-weekly flights, operating on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout July, August and September, will boost connectivity between the UK and Ireland and provide the only direct air link between the UK and Donegal.


Luke Lovegrove, Chief Commercial Officer, Loganair, said:

"It’s great to see Loganair’s tartan tails back at Donegal this summer, and today marks the first of the new weekday flights that we added after customer feedback. Our new service is operated by the larger and quieter ATR-42, enhancing our customer experience on this route.”


Eilis Docherty, Managing Director, Donegal Airport, said:

“The management and staff at Donegal Airport are delighted to welcome Loganair back to Donegal Airport for Summer 2023.  We are encouraged by the high level of bookings to date, which is an affirmation of the ongoing demand for a direct route between Donegal and Scotland.

The introduction of the ATR42-600 series aircraft will provide additional capacity to grow passenger numbers over the busy summer season.”


Cormac O'Suilleabhain, Brand Partnership Manager at Tourism Ireland, said:

"Tourism Ireland is delighted that the Glasgow to Donegal route with Loganair has now recommenced.

We recognise the vital importance of direct air connectivity and the key role that this air link to Donegal provides for Scottish holiday-makers. We look forward to welcoming visitors from Glasgow and all over Scotland to the island of Ireland and working with Loganair to promote the route and further expand their network to the island.”


Customers travelling from Donegal to Glasgow can also benefit from onward connections at Glasgow to points within Loganair's extensive route network across the UK.

All fares include a 15kg luggage allowance, discounts for children aged 11 and under, and a mandatory carbon offset charge as part of the airline's innovative GreenSkies sustainability programme.
