The Scottish regional airline Loganair has released a new timetable designed to further improve links to Manchester and England’s North West region.
Last December the airline announced its first ever nonstop weekly service linking Stornoway in the Western Isles of Scotland with Manchester. From summer 2018 Loganair will increase flights on this route to two nonstop services per week.
Commenting on the increased service Jonathan Hinkles, Loganair’s managing director said: “This is fantastic news for the tourism industry on Lewis and the Western Isles in general. It also allows greater flexibility of business and leisure trips from Lewis to the North West of England.”
In addition to the Saturday service which operates throughout the busy summer season from 23 June through to 1 September, a Wednesday flight will now operate from 27 June to 29 August.
This combination of two flights a week will provide greater options, “increasing flexibility whether for those using the new nonstop links to access the wide variety of onward flights for both leisure or business trips from Manchester Airport, and for those from England’s North West using the new nonstop services to reach the beautiful Western Isles for long or short holiday breaks,” Hinkles added.
