Just been announced that Loganair will be taking over the ex Flybe Birmingham to Aberdeen route.
I was referring to the prices to fly BHX-Orkney/Shetlands Rob, which as far as i am aware was not available with Flybe. The cheapest Aberdeen fares look fairly similar to Flybe, especially as they include 15k hold luggage. In saying that it looks like a lot of days the cheaperThat is the only issue price how do they relate to Flybe prices.
If they were to purchase aircraft i'd have thought it would be ATRs as they will be replacing their Saab 2000s with ATR42s.nice to see them jump in ons a few routes, maybe they could compete with Easyjet on Glasgow and Edinburgh, and help keep the fares down, and add more frequencies?
However the use of 50 seater E-jets are a bit worrying, not the idea aircraft, as BMI showed for regional routes!
Maybe they might purchase a few of the Flybe dashes? would any airline want them?
Not sure where todays developments leave the often used excuse used for BHX's poor recent record in atttracting new airlines that negotiations take a long time. Admittedly unusual circumstances but shows if airlines are sure there is a market it will be served.Aberdeen is to be 3x daily with Inverness once daily.
Great to see such a quick response and I'm sure more will follow in due course.
