Speaking as the new routes from the Teeside base were unveiled, Loganair Chief Executive Jonathan Hinkles said, “The coronavirus has presented unprecedented challenges to the aviation sector, but despite the setbacks caused by the virus, our airport continues to go from strength to strength and we are already putting the building blocks in place for a strong 2021. It’s fantastic to be back in Teesside and to be able to announce a long-term commitment from Loganair to provide a comprehensive schedule of safe and dependable flights to the UK, Ireland and the Channel Islands, symbolised by our newly named aircraft, Spirit of Teesside. We’re confident the news will be most welcome from businesses in the region which depend on connectivity more so than ever as the recovery commences, and also to those looking to get away for a much-needed break in 2021. Customers can rest assured about their health and well-being when travelling too, with our ‘Fly Safe – Simple Steps to Healthy Flying’ programme in place to make our aircraft a Covid-secure way to travel.”
