Loganair reveals skeleton lifeline schedule

Loganair is to run a skeleton service of six flights a week on key routes to maintain essential services to remote parts of Scotland.

The Glasgow Airport-based carrier today announced further reductions in its flight schedules in line with Government advice and expects to ground half its fleet of 44 aircraft. It will operate dedicated flights for the Royal Mail and oil & gas workers. Selected services are planned to resume from 20 April and on others from 31 May, subject to review depending on coronavirus restrictions.

Staff have been advised they are likely to be furloughed under the Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

Chief executive Jonathan Hinkles said: “The challenges that we’re all facing in everyday life are evolving by the day, and we are having to work through a whole host of disparate issues to maintain services for those with a critical need to travel, or indeed the many island communities totally reliant on Loganair to deliver their daily essentials.

“I’m proud of the work that so many of our team are doing right now to keep vital air routes open, without which our communities would be in severe difficulty. The tremendous team spirit in evidence throughout Loganair is providing all of us with confidence to tackle the challenges that undoubtedly lay ahead.”

The following routes will run once daily, except for Saturdays:

· Aberdeen-Kirkwall

· Aberdeen-Manchester

· Aberdeen-Norwich

· Aberdeen-Sumburgh

· Glasgow-Barra

· Glasgow-Benbecula

· Glasgow-Campbeltown

· Glasgow-Islay

· Glasgow-Stornoway

· Glasgow-Tiree

· Isle of Man-Liverpool

· Isle of Man-Manchester

· Kirkwall-Sumburgh

· Orkney inter-isles air services

· Stornoway-Benbecula
