Scottish carrier Loganair will operate flights in its own right for the first time in almost 25 years. The Glasgow-based airline will adopt a new tartan-themed livery from September 1 to coincide with the conclusion of its ten-year franchise agreement with Flybe. This follows a similar arrangement with British Airways, operated from 1993 to 2007.
“[This] announcement is a major milestone in the 54-year history of Loganair,” Peter Simpson, CEO of Loganair’s parent Airline Investments Ltd (AIL) commented. “Although Loganair has flown as a franchise carrier for larger airlines over the last 24 years, there is still a huge level of recognition and affinity for the Loganair name throughout Scotland and beyond. We believe the time is right for Scotland’s Airline to now spread its wings once again, and are delighted to be introducing a bold new corporate identity to accompany this important move.”
Loganair confirmed it is discussing potential opportunities to co-operate with Flybe beyond the end of the franchise agreement, while its codeshare agreement with British Airways will also continue.
