Happy 60th Loganair
Loganair started life on 1st February 1962 in Glasgow and now serves more UK airports than any other airline.
The airline marked the anniversary with a special ceremony and chocolates for every passenger flying today.
To celebrate the special birthday, Loganair has launched a competition to give away a diamond ticket, consisting of 60 free flights across its network, to one lucky winner.
The airline is asking people to enter the competition by nominating an individual or group that deserves to win the special ticket.
Jonathan Hinkles, Loganair’s Chief Executive, said: “We are thrilled to be celebrating our 60th anniversary, an unrivalled milestone in the UK regional airline industry. In the time that Loganair has been serving customers in Scotland and beyond, over 50 other airlines have come and gone – yet a constant has been the commitment of Loganair to keeping communities connected.
“Today’s milestone could never have been reached without the efforts and dedication of Scott Grier, Loganair’s President and the driving force of the airline between 1976 and 2012; Loganair’s dedicated team of staff throughout the last six decades; and the unwavering commitment of our owners, Stephen and Peter Bond, who have now been involved with the airline for over 20 years.
“We’re delighted to announce a major expansion of our partnership with British Airways, effectively doubling the number of routes on which we co-operate to bring benefits for customers. The development cements what we believe to be the longest-running relationship between two UK airlines, and it’s a partnership which will continue to deliver for customers throughout the UK.
“The next 60 years will undoubtedly see a different set of challenges, yet I’m already hugely encouraged by progress to develop new carbon-neutral electrical and hydrogen power sources for domestic flights. It’s clear that short-haul domestic flights will be the first to benefit from these new technologies, and I fully expect that we’ll see the first of these powering Loganair customers to the destination within the first six of our next 60 years.”
