Loganair Bring More Seats to Dublin

Loganair marked the first anniversary of its Aberdeen-Dublin service this week with the announcement of plans to increase the number of seats offered and to introduce lower fares on the route. The UK’s largest regional airline helped re-establish the service between the two cities following the collapse of Stobart Air with the inaugural service on 5 September 2021. The service between Scotland’s granite city and the capital of Ireland remains a key connection for Loganair, flying up to six days per week. The airline is projecting to offer almost 50,000 seats on the route in the year ahead, almost twice as many as in its first year. Due to the popularity of its service, Loganair will now deploy the largest aircraft in its fleet, the 72-seater ATR-72 aircraft.

The efficiency and low environmental footprint of the state-of-the-art ATR72 turboprops will also enable Loganair to offer a wider range of lower fares between Aberdeen and Dublin. On Loganair flights, a checked baggage allowance and in-flight refreshments are included as standard – services for which customers have to pay more than most other airlines.    

Commenting on the expansion, Loganair’s Chief Commercial Officer Luke Lovegrove said, “It’s great to celebrate our first anniversary on the Aberdeen-Dublin route by setting out exciting plans to offer more seats and lower fares on this important route. It reflects just how far we’ve progressed since we tentatively began flights last September – and it’s all too easy to forget that this was a time when pandemic restrictions still dominated the travel industry. With those firmly behind us, we’re pleased to be looking to the future and providing more of the services that our customers need, whether they be travelling for business, leisure or to catch another flight on one of Loganair’s wide range of partner airlines.”

Also commenting was the Tourism Ireland Brand Partnership Manager Cormac O’Suilleabhain who said, “Tourism Ireland is delighted with the announcement of Loganair’s capacity increase on the Aberdeen – Dublin route. We recognise the vital importance of direct air connectivity and the key role that this air link to Dublin provides for Scottish holiday-makers. We look forward to welcoming visitors from Aberdeen to the island of Ireland and working with Loganair to promote the route and further expand their network to the island.”
