UK regional carrier Loganair will launch a new service between its Scottish base on Orkney island and London City as part of its summer 2023 schedule.
Commencing on 4 April, the twice-weekly flights will operate on Tuesday and Friday as the carrier looks to "enhance connectivity" after reporting a swift return to profit following the pandemic.
The carrier on Thursday (27 October) also announced plans to restore services between Orkney and Edinburgh to pre-pandemic levels with three flights per day. The route will be serviced by the carrier’s larger 48-seat ATR-42 aircraft, increasing capacity from 34 seats on the previous Saab 340.
The carrier also announced its twice weekly service to Fair Isle, one of the UK's smallest airports, will be re-established as part of its summer schedule, the first time since March 2019, while its international weekly service to Bergen, Norway, will also recommence from 13 May.
