Double delight for Loganair passengers heading across the water to Donegal
Passengers using the Glasgow to Donegal route are in for a double boost – Flybe and franchise partner Loganair are doubling the number of flights and waiving baggage charges until the end of April to the coastal county.
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.
The 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.
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 £27.98 from the normal cost of booking.
Flights are bookable now until February 15 next year, and both Loganair and partners Flybe anticipate a large volume of both business and tourism passengers visiting friends, relatives and associates.
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 30 April to save money by including a 20kg bag in the fare, which we’re sure will prove popular as the peak summer season approaches.”
Francois Bourienne, commercial director at Glasgow Airport, said: “Loganair’s Donegal route has proved extremely popular since its launch in November 2011 and it is great to see the airline respond to demand in this way.
“Loganair is clearly committed to continually improving its service for customers and should be congratulated for doing so.”
