Loganair has added a new route between Edinburgh and Derry/Londonderry, starting next year.
The airline’s 55-minute service begins on May 17, 2022, and will initially operate on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Flights will be added to the carrier’s schedule on Thursdays and Saturdays during the peak summer months.
One-way fares start from £53.99.
Chief commercial officer Kay Ryan (pictured) said: “Keeping people connected is a key driver for us and launching this route further strengthens our network across the UK while developing our partnerships with each airport.
“Offering greater choice, we now operate services from Derry to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stanstead and Liverpool, with further onward connections to the Highlands and islands, benefiting business and leisure travellers alike.”
Kate Sherry, aviation director at Edinburgh, said her team looked forward to working with Loganair to “identify further opportunities” offer services from the airport.
Steve Fraser, managing director of City of Derry airport, said: “Improving connectivity is key to strengthening our frequency to business routes in support of the north west’s regional development plans.
It comes a day after chancellor Rishi Sunak announced plans to halve APD on domestic flights in the autumn Budget.
