  • New East Midlands Routes

    Loganair to take on key East Midlands – Scotland routes

    Loganair, Scotland’s Airline, is to take over routes linking Edinburgh and Glasgow with East Midlands from Sunday 27 October as the incumbent airline withdraws its services.

    Scotland’s Airline has stepped in at short notice to take on the routes, used by over 150,000 travellers each year, maintaining vital connectivity between Scotland and the Midlands for businesses and for family links and tourism.     The move follows Loganair’s inaugural flight at East Midlands at the beginning of September when services to Brussels and Inverness took off, and its recent announcement of new services to Aberdeen from 24 February 2020.

    Loganair’s launch of the Edinburgh-East Midlands route will bring immediate benefits for customers, as one of the airline’s 49-seat Embraer 145 jets will be deployed on the route to provide up to four services each way per weekday.   This doubles the number of flights on the route and introduces a new, convenient schedule with a choice of departure times throughout the day.

    Weekday flights will depart from Edinburgh at 06:50, 14:30, 16:00 and 19:30 and flights will leave East Midlands for Edinburgh at 08:30, 14:15, 17:40 and 19:55. The flight time will be just 70 minutes, and there will be a Saturday morning flight and a choice of Sunday departures too.

    Fares on both routes will start from £49.99 one-way and all Loganair fares include a complimentary hold baggage allowance, Clan Loganair frequent flyer rewards and in-flight refreshments.   A true sign of Loganair’s continued growth is that the airline now expects to serve over a million Tunnock’s Caramel Wafers on its flights over the coming year!

    Glasgow services will similarly commence on Sunday 27 October.   There will initially be two flights per weekday – again operated by the 49-seat Embraer Regional Jets which prove popular with Loganair’s customers – plus weekend flights.

    Early in the new year, Loganair will upgrade the Glasgow-East Midlands service to three flights in each direction per weekday and introduce a much-improved, customer-friendly timetable on the route, enabling business travellers to enjoy a working day in either destination.  The upgrade will take place as soon as operational resources permit.

    The new Loganair services will also open up a wide range of flight connections from East Midlands to the Highlands and Islands, meeting Loganair’s flights to destinations including Shetland, Orkney, Stornoway, Benbecula, Islay, Barra, Campbeltown, Tiree and Wick at Edinburgh and/or Glasgow.

    Customers already holding reservations with Flybe will shortly be contacted by them to set out their options including re-booking onto the new Loganair East Midlands-Scotland services.   As Loganair has no access to Flybe booking data, assistance for customers to arrange re-booking can only be accessed via Flybe’s reservations team.

    Reservations can be made at www.loganair.co.uk, by calling Loganair’s Customer Contact Centre on 0344 800 2855

  • Loganair’s Tiree station manager celebrates 40 years in the job

    One of Loganair’s longest-serving employees has marked a ruby anniversary at the helm of the airline’s operation in the remote Scottish island of Tiree – one of the UK’s smallest commercial airports.

    Ishbel MacKinnon, or Tish (57) as she is known locally, has been employed at Loganair’s station on the 12-mile-long Inner Hebridean island since July 1979 – when the airport served around 4000 passengers per annum. She eventually went on to take over from her late father, Archie MacArthur who headed up the airport between 1960 and 1990 as an employee of British Airways (then British European Airways) – which provided air routes to Glasgow and Barra.

    Her first visit to the airport was quite early, days after being born in Glasgow and arriving back in Tiree by air with her mother and grandmother – still owning the original ticket written by Archie for the trip to Glasgow Airport.

    Despite being a regular in her father’s workplace as a youngster, Tish’s official duties commenced when she stepped in as holiday cover for her dad during term breaks while completing a childcare course in Langside College, Glasgow.

    The father and daughter duo shared duties for 11 years – with Archie famously working the morning of Tish’s wedding, deliberately timed to start in the afternoon, so she could get ready and he could meet the morning inbound flight – packed with wedding guests.

    Loganair started serving Tiree in 1975 but locals still referred to the airfield as being operated by BEA – ‘Big Erchie’s Airline’- illustrating how important the family is to aviation in Tiree.

    After his retirement in 1990 Tish was promoted to Senior Customer Services Manager, responsible for Loganair’s operation in Tiree – which last year welcomed around 12,000 passengers – less than 0.004% of the UK’s total air travellers.

    Overseeing daily flights to and from Glasgow on a 19-seat Twin Otter aircraft, Tish heads up a team of three Loganair employees tasked with ensuring customers and their baggage are looked after safely and professionally – with daily duties including check-in, reservations, baggage handling and arrangements in the event of occasional weather disruption.

    Tish said: “It’s a really rewarding job and the fact I’ve been in post for 40 years shows how much I enjoy it. The air service is really important to residents of Tiree, used by locals going on holiday or to visit relatives, but also for trips to hospital, weddings, honeymoons and occasionally even funerals.

    “One of my favourite perks is being the first person to meet new-born babies as they arrive back on the island after leaving hospital in Glasgow, which is actually the exact journey I took whenever I first arrived in the world and when I gave birth to my three children. I’ve also met lots of celebrities, politicians, nobility and musicians who visit Tiree throughout the year.

    “Things have definitely changed quite a bit since I first started but Loganair ensures I’m fully trained in all the rules and regulations around aviation as well as the various technologies which are now essential to the role.

    “With the number of customers passing through the airport increasing yearly – as Tiree’s popularity continues to grow amongst tourists, I look forward to welcoming visitors to the island for many years to come.”

    Aviation definitely runs in the family, with Tish’s daughter Lynne Kerr previously working as Loganair cabin crew. Another member of the MacKinnon clan also looks set to step into the family trade as 5-year old grandson Aonghas has developed an early love for aviation – even asking for a Loganair uniform for his Christmas present.

    Tish is married to husband, Angus MacKinnon, a local builder and together they have three children and two grandchildren.

    Kay Ryan, Loganair’s commercial director said: “I’d like to extend a huge congratulations to Tish, from everyone at Loganair, for such an amazing service record with the company. Tish is the face of the airline in Tiree, often the first person to greet visitors from around the world while also supporting the local community with all of their travel plans. Her knowledge and passion for the job is fantastic and I can only thank Tish who is an integral part of the Loganair family.”

  • HIAL strike action 23/05/19

    The union representing Air Traffic Control workers at six Highlands & Islands Airports Ltd airports has notified HIAL of strike action on Thursday 23 May.   This will affect Benbecula, Dundee, Inverness, Kirkwall, Stornoway and Sumburgh.   Flights to Wick John O’Groats remain unaffected.

    As a result of this notification, the following changes have been made to Loganair’s schedule.   Where possible, we are adding extra flights on 22 and 24 May to help customers unable to travel on 23 May to rearrange their travel itineraries.

     

    Wednesday 22 May

     

    The following flights have been re-timed or re-routed:

     

    LM 037 Kirkwall-Aberdeen Retimed 30 minutes earlier.   KOI 16:30 – 17:15 ABZ
    LM 038 Aberdeen-Kirkwall Retimed 45 minutes earlier.   ABZ 17:50 – 18:35 KOI
    LM 139 INV-Kirkwall-Sumburgh Will now operate Inverness-Kirkwall only
    LM 357 Edinburgh-Sumburgh Retimed 45 minutes earlier.   EDI 17:15 – 18:45 LSI

     

    There will be extra flights on the evening of Wednesday 22 May to assist those booked to travel on flights the following day which will be cancelled due to HIAL Air Traffic Control industrial action:

     

    LM 039 Kirkwall-Aberdeen KOI 19:30 – 20:15 ABZ – 50 seat Saab 2000 aircraft

    Thursday 23 May

     

    Due to HIAL industrial action, all flights to and from Benbecula; Dundee, Inverness, Kirkwall, Stornoway and Sumburgh will be cancelled.  If you are booked to travel on this date, we are offering the option to change your travel plans (including any associated outward or return journey) to move to any available flight on the same or equivalent route between Monday 20 May and Monday 27 May.   There will be no charge payable (i.e. the usual change fees plus any difference in fare will be waived for all ticket types).

     

    If your journey involves a connection with another airline, we, unfortunately, cannot guarantee that other airlines will offer the same flexibility to change tickets.  We recommend that customers check with the second airline around their onward travel.   Alternatively, if you elect not to travel, you can request a refund may be taken for any journey or part of a journey not used.

     

    For clarity, all services on the following routes will be cancelled on this date:

     

    Aberdeen to Kirkwall, Sumburgh
    Benbecula to Glasgow, Inverness, Stornoway

  • Our heritage

    Loganair was part of a management buyout led by Chairman Scott Grier. Five Britten- Norman Islanders operated the Shetland and the Orkney Inter-Isle services as Loganair routes. The Twin Otter was introduced on services from Glasgow to Tiree, Barra and Campbeltown.

  • Askernish Golf Day

    Over the next 80 years Old Tom’s creation became wild and over-grown – with fears it would never be played again.

    In 2005 a group of locals decided that they wanted it to bring it back to life, setting to work, with the help of some of the sport’s biggest and best names, restoring this ’lost’ course. Three years later it was reopened as an 18-hole course which has received the highest acclaim from golfing media and beyond.

    Askernish begins with a 6-hole loop which includes two par 5s. These holes give you a gentle start where undulating greens and large elevation changes provide the challenges to prepare players for the next 12 holes. Once at the 7th tee the wild Atlantic Ocean meets the horizon, with views of Barra in the distance while navigating one of golf’s most amazing dune systems.
