Flybe, Europe’s largest independent regional airline, has celebrated the five year anniversary of its franchise agreement with Scottish airline Loganair that, when it took to the skies at the start of the winter flying programme in 2008, was the first ever deal of its kind for a low cost carrier.
Loganair currently flies 25 routes under the Flybe brand from 11 airports exclusively served by the Scottish airline. It has today also announced it will take over two routes after Flybe withdraws from them at the end of March 2014 namely those from Edinburgh to Norwich and Cardiff.
Phil Preston, Chief Operating Officer at Loganair, added: “It is great to be able to celebrate five successful years in partnership with Flybe. We are delighted to be part of an extensive regional network which links the communities of our home markets within the Highlands and Islands of Scotland with key Flybe destinations throughout the UK and Europe.”
