Scottish airline Loganair (LM/LOG) has announced an expansion at Aberdeen Airport (ABZ/EGPD) which will see the creation of 20 new jobs at the Scottish airport.
The airline announced the restoration of a year-round route to Oslo, Norway which will operate 6 days per week Sunday through to Friday from 13th June.
The Oslo service means that Loganair will operate to 14 destinations from Aberdeen in its 60th Anniversary year and will see the airline recruit 20 new pilots and cabin crew in addition to Engineers to carry out on-demand and scheduled maintenance at its Aberdeen base.
Loganair directly employs 120 people at Aberdeen airport and indirectly supports around 100 more jobs in the local area.
Chief executive of Loganair Jonathan Hinkles said: “We’re delighted to be adding Oslo flights at Loganair’s Aberdeen hub, restoring connectivity to the Norwegian capital for both business and leisure travellers. It’s an important and long-standing route at Aberdeen, and one which we’re pleased to step into following the cutbacks which other airlines have understandably made during the pandemic.
“Together with the new Oslo route, Loganair’s expansion at Aberdeen will see us offering our largest-ever schedule in Summer 2022. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to welcome many new employees to our airline in recent weeks as we create new jobs to support this growth. It has been a tough two years for the whole industry and it is clear that they’re hugely excited to be returning to the skies with Loganair.”
Mark Beveridge, operations director at Aberdeen International Airport, added: “On the back of some great announcements from Loganair with their 60th year celebrations, we warmly welcome this new service to Oslo.
“Loganair is a valued airline partner at our airport and we look forward to this route starting later in the year.”
Fares on the new Oslo service start at £109.99 one way and can be booked at loganair.com
