Leading UK regional airline Loganair (LM/LOG) has announced it is launching a service between London City Airport (LCY/EGLC) and the Orkney Islands (KOI/EGPA) for the first time.
The twice-weekly service will operate on Tuesdays and Fridays providing a connection between the islands and the UK’s capital city from 4th April 2023.
Operating via Dundee, passengers do not need to connect with a different flight and can remain onboard during the turnaround in Dundee before continuing onwards with the 3 1/2 long flight.
Luke Lovegrove, chief commercial officer at Loganair, said: “We are thrilled to enhance connectivity within our summer 2023 schedule. The new service to London City, as well as the increase in service to Edinburgh, the reinstated route to Fair Isle and the international connection to Bergen, not only bolsters connectivity for the local community but additionally encourages tourists from across the UK and beyond to visit the wonders of Orkney.“
Kimberley Fisher, Kirkwall Airport manager, said: “Loganair’s new flights will offer the community more choice when it comes to travel and will also provide additional options for those wishing to visit Orkney, which in turn could provide a boost to the local economy.”
