Loganair – Birmingham Airport’s new airline

Published on Wednesday, 24 June 2020

As lockdown restrictions begin to ease, some distinctive planes have been spotted at Birmingham Airport featuring unique tartan tailfins – but which airline is responsible for this iconic themed branding?

The answer is Loganair, and it may surprise you – but they are the UK’s longest established airline (operating since 1962) and now the UK’s largest regional airline.

As lockdown restrictions have eased, Loganair has been the first airline to recommence passenger flights across the UK, so that key domestic connectivity is restored for business and friends and family – as soon as the time is right.

Loganair is initially flying from Birmingham Airport to Aberdeen up to 4 days per week from the 12th June – Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. Though as the UK economy gradually re-opens, frequency will increase in the coming weeks.

Loganair were also the first UK airline to introduce new healthy-flying measures to protect their customers whilst travelling during the Covid-19 outbreak. Their “Simple Steps to Healthy Flying” initiative involves zonal-embarkation, the provision of PPE for customers and auto-seat allocation for maximum social distancing on-board, to name a few measures.

For those who have not flown with Loganair before – they were recently awarded the Domestic Airline of the Year award by the SPAA and all their fares include 15kg hold-luggage as standard.

Aberdeen flights provide an important link for those in the West Midlands who work offshore in the North Sea Energy Sector and provide easy access to some of Scotland’s most beautiful outdoor spaces.
