Barra ADS Scheme

Additional Barra Air Services


To provide year-round frequency on services between Barra and Glasgow, the route is supported by the Scottish Government via a Public Service Obligation (PSO)

During the summer months, there is high demand for the air service, and to provide additional frequency Loganair operates commercial air services in addition to the core PSO funded services.  These commercial services have a different fare structure to those of the PSO as there is no subsidy support for the provision of the flights.


About The Air Discount Scheme (ADS)

The commercial air services to Barra do qualify as ADS flights, and therefore eligible members of the ADS scheme are entitled to the 50% discount on the core air fare (excludes airport taxes) via the Scottish Government’s ADS initiative.

Barra residents travelling for leisure purposes and students studying away from their Barra home are eligible for the ADS discount.
