This week saw Loganair, the UK’s largest regional airline, announce the return of flights between Inverness and Dublin and the launch of flights between Shetland and Dundee.
The services will commence as part of the Summer 2022 schedule, offering great connections for three of Highlands and Islands Airports Limited’s (HIAL) regional airports; Dundee, Inverness and Sumburgh.
HIAL managing director Inglis Lyon, said: “Loganair’s routes expansion and the increasing frequency of its services is a further indication the aviation industry is emerging from the pandemic and reacting positively to pent up demand.
“I am particularly pleased our airports in Dundee and Shetland will offer direct flights, which will provide greater connectivity between the two locations and also allow passengers to link to London City.
“It is especially pleasing to see Inverness and Dublin connecting once more and I am sure this popular route will see passengers take advantage of the leisure and business opportunities it presents.”
Loganair will recommence its Inverness and Dublin service for the first time since before the pandemic, flying from 27 May 2022. While the new service between Shetland and Dundee is set to commence from 9 May 2022. Customers flying from Shetland to Dundee or London City will now also be able to use their Air Discount Scheme for the entire journey.
Kay Ryan, chief commercial officer at Loganair, said: “We are looking to 2022 with optimism and continuing to connect more and more of the UK as we are able to do.
“Customer booking patterns will remain an incredibly important factor for us as we review which services we operate and which destinations we add either frequency or additional seat capacity to. We’ve had a really positive reaction from customers so far for next summer
And we look forward to welcoming old and new alike back on board.”
