Loganair was welcomed into London Southend Airport yesterday (13 May) for the first time when the carrier’s inaugural service from Aberdeen touched-down.

The Scottish regional carrier is flying a four-times a week to the growing Essex gateway and the service utilises an Embraer 145 regional aircraft.

The airline’s first service was welcomed with a tradtional water arch salute.

Loganair’s managing director, Jonathan Hinkles said: “Air connectivity with London is incredibly important for the North East of Scotland where there has been significant capacity reduction to other London airports of late.

“We’ve specifically created a schedule which is optimum for those travelling for business during the week, with day-return schedules in addition to our rewarding frequent flyer programme: Clan Loganair.”

Stobart Aviation is the owner of London Southend Airport and chief executive officer, Glyn Jones said Aberdeen is a fantastic addition to London Southend’s extensive route map.
