Loganair surprises young Aviation fan with birthday gift

UK regional airline Loganair (LM/LOG) has celebrated carrying 1.5m passengers through Glasgow Airport by awarding one family tickets for free flights.

The Lee family were returning home to Benbecula from Glasgow when they were chosen for the gift, which came as mum Laura and 3 year old Iver, an avid plane enthusiast, celebrated their birthdays along with dad Stan.

Laura said: “It was such a surprise to be the winners of the free tickets today – what a lovely birthday gift for Iver and me.

“We fly a few times a year to see our family in Lincolnshire, so we might use the tickets to spend more quality time with our family. However, since we moved to Benbecula two years ago, we’ve also wanted to explore the other Scottish islands, so maybe we’ll take a family holiday instead.”

Luke Lovegrove, chief commercial officer at Loganair, said: “We are thrilled to celebrate this significant milestone with the Lee family. 1.5 million Loganair customers have now travelled through Glasgow Airport since 2017. Our flights from Glasgow to the Scottish Islands offer vital connections between many rural locations and Scotland’s largest city, which we are proud to call our home.

“It was wonderful to meet with the Lee family who are regular flyers with Loganair and we thank them for their continued support. We hope that little Iver will grow up to become a future Loganair pilot!”

Loganair’s Scottish hub at Glasgow connects the city with more remote areas of Scotland and the islands inckuding Barra, Benbecula, Stornoway, and Tiree.

It also offers year-round service to Northern Ireland through Derry and Donegal.

Mark Beveridge, managing director at Glasgow Airport, added: “Our airport and Loganair have been working together for many years now and I’m delighted to extend our congratulations for the 1.5 million customer milestone.

“The relationship between ourselves and Loganair has gone from strength to strength, and we are proud to partner with them in facilitating seamless travel experiences for our passengers.

“We look forward to continued success together in the years ahead.”
