Extra Glasgow to Stornoway flights

Passengers travelling between Glasgow and Stornoway are set to enjoy more flexible weekday travel from Monday, May 2nd.

Loganair, Scotland’s Airline, will be offering four flights in each direction each weekday, adding 10,000 seats to the schedule over the next 12 months and increasing the number of low-fare flights available between the two destinations. Currently, the Flybe franchise carrier offers three flights between Glasgow and Stornoway each weekday.

Commenting on the move, Loganair’s Chief Operating Officer Jonathan Hinkles said: “In common with many other routes, we reduced the frequency of service between Glasgow and Stornoway as the economic downturn had impacted heavily on passenger numbers.

“We had always intended cutbacks of this nature to be temporary, and planned to restore the fourth weekday flight to our schedule when demand warranted its re-introduction.

“I’m pleased that, following several months of modest growth in the number of passengers using the route, we have been able to add this extra service back into our timetable ahead of the busy summer travel period.”
