Leading regional airline Loganair (LM/LOG) will be increasing capacity on its flights between Newcastle (NCL/EGNT) and Aberdeen (ABZ/EGPD) by 21% from early January.

The boost comes in the form of an aircraft upgrade to the 49-seat Embraer E145 Regional Jet which will operate the morning and evening flights on the city pair from 13th January 2020.

Loganair said that the increase is down to more passengers between the two cities choosing the Scottish airline thanks to its reputation for reliability, in fact, the latest CAA stats say that flights with the alternative operator Flybe (operated by Eastern Airways) are five times more likely to be canceled than the Loganair service.*

Loganair’s Chief Commercial Officer Kay Ryan said: “We are delighted customers have responded so positively to our service between Newcastle and Aberdeen. It’s clear that passengers really value the Loganair product, in particular, our frequent flyer programme, Clan Loganair”
