Loganair to Operate New Service to Dublin
Scottish airline, Loganair has announced a new four times weekly service from Aberdeen to Dublin starting on 5th September. The new route replaces the Stobart Air service which was lost following their collapse two weeks ago. The new route will be operated on a Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday initially, increasing to a daily service in March 2022 and will increase to nine services per week in April with two services on a Monday and Friday. Loganair has served Dublin for many years but this will be the first since the suspension of its Inverness service last year. Both Inverness and Teesside will also be on the Loganair network from Dublin next summer.
Commenting on the route announcement, Loganair’s Chief Commercial Officer Kay Ryan said, “We are truly excited to be operating this important service and pleased to be able to step in and quickly restore the vital link between these two great cities. It fits well with our increasingly dominant presence as the UK’s premier regional airline and develops our growing relationship with IAG through our codeshare with BA. We now look forward to enhancing our connectivity further as we work closely with Aer Lingus. We believe that, as certainty grows with the ongoing Covid-19 vaccination programme, an easing of current travel restrictions to and from the Irish Republic will allow customers to book and travel with confidence.”
Also commenting was Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison who said he was delighted to welcome the new service from Loganair. “Dublin Airport has historically had very strong connectivity to a host of British cities and we’re happy to see Loganair restoring the direct connection between Dublin and Aberdeen and offering onward connectivity to a number of other Scottish destinations. We’ll be working hard with our colleagues at Loganair to help drive traffic in both directions on the new service.”
Loganair will also be offering connections from its network via Aberdeen to Dublin – including from Sumburgh in Shetland and Kirkwall in Orkney. Tickets are now on sale via the airlines website.
