Tartan planes have been spotted in the skies above the Toon after Scottish airline, Loganair, officially started flying from Newcastle Airport.
The regional carrier picked up two routes in danger of being stopped altogether after February’s news that flybmi had gone into administration.
Newcastle’s business community relies heavily on the airlinks between Belgium’s capital, Brussels, and the Norwegian city of Stavanger, and, in recognition, Loganair stepped in to ensure continuity.
Recently awarded the prestigious title of Airline of the Year by the European Regions Airline Association, it’s clear why Loganair is the ideal carrier to connect the three cities.
Providing early morning double daily rotations between the North East and Brussels from Monday to Thursday, it is also operating two evening departures on Friday and Sunday. The schedule has been designed to enable a full working day in the European Union’s administrative capital, overnight trips or a number of different weekend options.
Meanwhile six flights are now available per week to Norway’s oil capital, Stavanger, on weekdays and Sunday.
What makes the airline particularly attractive, compared to the previous operator, is that all fares include 20kg of baggage, 6kg hold allowance and a complimentary inflight refreshment – the best way to begin a visit to these wonderful destinations.
Aware that in business plans can often change at short notice, corporate customers can take advantage of great value fully-flexible fares, which enable last schedule minute changes and also include lounge access and fast-track security at selected airports.
Frequent flyers will also be interested to hear about Loganair’s generous loyalty scheme – Clan Loganair. Passengers opting for the carrier’s fullyflexible fare get one return journey for every five return trips flown. Those travelling with standard fares receive reward points per flight as opposed to spend, meaning even those taking advantage of the airline’s most competitive prices are rewarded too.
With so many incentives for business passengers, it would be easy to overlook the perks on offer for customers who might be visiting Brussels or Stavanger for a short break. Asides from schedules, which allow midweek, long weekend or even week-long trips, anyone travelling with children can benefit from a 33 per cent discount for any young passengers up to the age of 11.
