Loganair to deliver year-round connectivity for Donegal

Loganair is introducing an enhanced schedule for services between Glasgow and Donegal, delivering year-round flights and its biggest-ever summer programme.

The UK’s largest regional airline remains the only carrier offering a direct air link between the Northwest Ireland and the UK.


Loganair’s summer schedule opens on 19 May with three flights weekly, rising to four between 6 July - 17 August for the peak season. The route will continue through the winter, with flights every Friday and Sunday, enabling weekend trips and providing vital year-round connectivity.


Luke Lovegrove, Chief Commercial Officer, Loganair, said:

"Our expanded schedule between Glasgow and Donegal will enable more customers than ever to travel in 2024 and we are delighted we can now offer this route through the winter in response to customer demand.

We have seen fantastic levels of support from customers for this service.”


Located at Carrickfinn, Donegal is regularly cited as the airport with the most scenic landing strip in the world. Loganair has flown to Donegal Airport since the early 1990s, and the relaunch of its Glasgow route in 2023 was warmly welcomed by a variety of travellers.

The service will again be operated by the quieter and more comfortable ATR-42 aircraft. The summer schedule will initially run on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, with Saturdays being added for the peak holiday season.


Eilís Docherty, Managing Director, Donegal Airport, said:

"Loganair's commitment to a year-round schedule between Donegal and Glasgow demonstrates a real vote of confidence in this strategically important route.  Passenger numbers in summer 2023 surpassed our expectations, and the additional frequency for 2024 will undoubtedly be welcomed  by the existing loyal customer base.  Year-round frequency gives the opportunity to develop the route and encourage further tourism travel between these two exciting regions. 

We look forward to working in partnership with the airline to ensure the continued success of the direct flights between Donegal and Glasgow."


Andy Cliffe, Chief Executive Officer, AGS, which owns and operates Glasgow Airport, said:

“We are thrilled to see Loganair expand its popular Glasgow to Donegal service, adding frequencies and extending to year-round service. Scottish travellers will be even better served in exploring this stunning region of Ireland, whilst Glasgow looks forward to welcoming our good neighbours from the other side of the water who seek to explore Scotland’s largest city and gateway to the country.”


Tickets for Loganair’s 2024 Glasgow-Donegal services can be booked now at and via all major travel agents.

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