Loganair has said that it will launch new flights from Cardiff to the tourist city of Glasgow.
The airline is set to commence a year-round, daily schedule on February 27, which will enable business or leisure trips of different durations – including weekends, long weekends and short breaks. The flight will be operated by a 49-seat Embraer 145 jet aircraft with a flight time of one hour and 15 minutes between Scotland and Wales. Tickets are available to book at www.loganair.co.uk, with fares starting from £44.99.
Loganair commercial director, Kay Ryan said: ‘We’re delighted to launch a new service from Cardiff – connecting Scotland and Wales’s largest cities.
‘This is an important business route, but the city is also popular with leisure customers – as one of Europe’s most dynamic destinations. We’ve got an extremely competitive offering which includes a complimentary baggage allowance and on board refreshments as well as one of the industry’s most attractive frequent flyer schemes so we’re very much looking forward to serving Cardiff Airport.
Deb Bowen Rees, Chief Executive Officer of Cardiff Airport, said: ‘Today’s announcement is very exciting news. We are very pleased that Loganair has recognised the potential that exists within the region and has chosen Cardiff to operate a strategically important route that links Scotland to Wales. I know that our customers will be delighted to know that regular flights to Glasgow are set to continue in the new year.
‘Furthermore, it’s great to welcome a new airline to Cardiff. We look forward to the commencement of the route in February and working closely with the team at Loganair.’
Across all its routes, Loganair provides a complimentary baggage allowance, in-flight refreshments and the option to join Clan Loganair – the airline’s reward programme for frequent flyers.
