Loganair has announced plans to start operating on 16 former Flybe routes – mostly from its bases at Scottish airports.
The Glasgow-based carrier said it would be adding nearly 400 new flights per week and had also opened a recruitment line for former Flybe employees.
The 16 routes will operate from existing Loganair bases at Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Newcastle. They will be launched over the next four months, starting from 16 March.
Loganair’s chief executive Jonathan Hinkles said: “The collapse of a long-standing airline like Flybe marks a desperately sad day, especially for the airline’s dedicated team of employees and for customers facing disruption to their journeys.
“By stepping in quickly with a comprehensive plan, Loganair is aiming to maintain essential air connectivity within the UK regions to keep customers flying, and to offer new employment to former Flybe staff members who are facing an uncertain future today.”
