Scottish regional carrier Loganair announced that they will add several new routes from Edinburgh as part of its summer schedule. The most significant for Scotland will be the first ever link between the capital and Islay Hebrides as this means easy access to/from Islay for global travellers.

In addition, Loganair will introduce regular year-round services to the Norwegian cities of Bergen and Stavanger and seasonal links between Edinburgh and Guernsey.

Bergen, Stavanger and Guernsey will each be operated by the airline’s newly acquired 37-seat Embraer 135 jet, the latest addition to its fleet of 30 aircrafts. The 34- seat saab 340 will fly to Islay.

Jonathan Hinkles, managing director of Loganair, said of the new routes “I’m delighted to launch four brand new routes from Scotland’s capital, significantly expanding our presence in Edinburgh.

“We know that Stavanger and Bergen will be of interest to both the leisure and corporate customer and have no doubt that both Islay and Guernsey will prove very popular to people looking for holiday in these beautiful destinations.”

Jonathan Rayner, aviation director at Edinburgh Airport, said “This expansion will provide the opportunity to build business links in Norway as well as appeal to those looking for a leisurely break and we’re excited to see these routes develop.”
