Scottish carrier Loganair increases links between Manchester and Western Isles
Airline Loganair is investing in its services between the Western Isles of Scotland and North West England.
The carrier this morning (February 20) unveiled a new timetable designed to further improve links between the two regions.
Loganair, which announced the first ever non-stop services linking Stornoway with Manchester in December, now intends to increase capacity with two non-stop services per week this summer.
In addition to the Saturday service set to run from June 23 to September 1, Wednesday flights will operate from June 27 to August 29.
Jonathan Hinkles, managing director of Loganair, said: “This is fantastic news for the tourism industry on Lewis and the Western Isles in general.
“It also allows greater flexibility of business and leisure trips from Lewis to the North West of England.”
He continued: “A combination of the Wednesday and Saturday flights will provide options for three, four, seven, 10-, 11- and 14-night stays at both destinations, increasing flexibility whether for those using the new non-stop links to access the wide variety of onward flights for both leisure or business trips from Manchester Airport, and for those from England’s North West using the new non-stop services to reach the beautiful Western Isles for long or short holiday breaks.
“Loganair at all times strives to increase connectivity to and from the Western Isles, and this latest service development undoubtedly strengthens these links.”
