The UK’s leading regional airliner Loganair (LM/LOG) is set to launch a raft of new domestic routes from London Heathrow (LHR/EGLL) after they were approved by the UK Government.

Following the acquisition of additional slot pairs, the airline aims to connect Dundee, Derry, Orkney and Shetland with the UK’s capital.

The Dundee service will replace the existing one to London City Airport (LCY/EGLC).

“The move to Heathrow truly is a gamechanger for UK regional air services,” says Loganair Chief Executive Jonathan Hinkles.  “Alongside excellent ground transport links into central London, the new range of global flight connections will bring new inward investment opportunities and tourism into the UK’s regions, together with enabling travellers to use their local airport to fly worldwide for the first time.”

Loganair aims to start the flights from 6th May 2023 and will open up the possibility of worldwide connections with Loganair’s partner which includes British Airways (BA/BAW).

Heathrow Chief Commercial Officer Ross Baker said: “Welcoming further Loganair services to Heathrow is exciting, with UK passengers and businesses set to benefit from hundreds of onward connections around the world. Our domestic charging discounts will continue to support further growth in our domestic network – which is vital to strengthen our role as the UK’s hub airport, helping to level-up investment across the country, while connecting more people and businesses to global growth.” 

The flights will be operated by Embraer ERJ145 Regional Jets and ATR42 Turboprops.
