PASSENGERS using the Glasgow to Donegal route are in for a double boost as Flybe and franchise partner Loganair are doubling the number of flights and waiving baggage charges until the end of April.
Scotland’s Airline Loganair, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, is increasing the number of weekly flights between Glasgow and north-west Ireland from three to six over the course of the summer.
And as an added bonus for passengers, the airline will include a free checked-in bag up to 20kgs on all bookings made between now and April 30 – saving £27.80 from the normal cost of booking.
Commenting on the expanded schedule and special offer, Loganair’s Chief Operating Officer Jonathan Hinkles said: “We’re delighted with the progress of the Donegal services which we launched late last year, and especially pleased that more people than ever before will be able to travel this summer using our enhanced schedule.
“Our new early-booking offer will help passengers making their reservations before April 30th to save money by including a 20kg bag in the fare, which we’re sure will prove popular as the peak summer season approaches.”
The Glasgow to Donegal route was launched last November with flights on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Loganair has now added a Monday flight to the busy route schedule and from next week a Thursday flight will travel in both directions.
A Saturday flight will also operate from May until September between the two regions, doubling the number of seats available and boosting the level of flexibility on offer to customers.
Fares for the route will start from £54.99 one-way including all taxes.
Flights are bookable now until February 15th next year, and both Loganair and partners Flybe anticipate a large volume of both business and tourism passengers visiting friends, relatives and associates.
