New Loganair routes in response to public covid optimism

Chief executive says airline is committed to growing Island base

Loganair's summer schedule increasing flights to the UK from the Island, have been created in response to public optimism regarding the coronavirus pandemic.

That's from the airline's Chief Executive Jonathan Hinkles.

In a raft of changes, new routes to Southampton and Belfast City will start up in May, with a seasonal service linking the Island to Jersey running from the end of spring into the summer.

There'll be double daily flights to Heathrow from the end of March, whilst those to Manchester will increase to two daily from 1 April.

A route to Birmingham will also be reintroduced from that date, as well services to Edinburgh.

The frequency of flights to both Liverpool and Manchester is also set to increase in July.
