Loganair to Resume Glasgow – Donegal Route
The Scottish airline, Loganair has announced it will resume its service between Glasgow and Donegal. The twice-weekly flights, operating on Saturdays and Sundays from Saturday, 1st of July to Sunday, 24th of September, will boost connectivity between the UK and Ireland and provide the only direct air link between the UK and Donegal. The news also marks the rekindling of a long-standing relationship between Loganair and Donegal Airport, with the airline flying on the route as far back as the early 1990s. The aircraft will operate on the airline’s new and more efficient ATR42 aircraft, the first time the airline has flown the type on a route to Donegal.
Commenting on the new route, the Chief Commercial Officer at Loganair, Luke Lovegrove said, “We are delighted to be able to restore this important connectivity between the UK and Ireland, helping families stay connected and facilitating leisure breaks too. We expect our summer flights to be extremely popular; therefore, we encourage customers to book as soon as possible to secure the best fares.”
Also commenting was the Managing Director at Donegal Airport, Eilis Docherty who said, ”Donegal Airport warmly welcomes the announcement of the resumption of the Donegal-Glasgow flights for Summer ’23 and will work closely with Loganair to ensure the success of the route.”
All fares include a 15kg luggage allowance, discounts for children aged 11 and under, and a mandatory carbon offset charge as part of the airline’s innovative GreenSkies sustainability programme. Flights can now be booked at the airlines website.
