Loganair has stepped in to secure five key air routes from Aberdeen International Airport and Newcastle International Airport following the news at the weekend that flybmi is to appoint administrators and has ceased operations.
The Scottish regional carrier will fly from Aberdeen to Bristol from 4 March, to Oslo from 4 March, to Esbjerg from 4 March, and from Newcastle to Stavanger from 25 March and to Brussels from 25 March.
Loganair managing director, Jonathan Hinkles said: “It’s always really sad to see an airline go out of business, and our thoughts are with all those affected – particularly staff members.
“We are evaluating flybmi’s wider network and assessing routes which align with Loganair’s distinct geographical area and overall strategic plans. We are also working on employment opportunities for pilots, cabin crew and engineering support staff to strengthen the Loganair team.”
