Loganair launches biggest ever Newcastle expansion

Loganair has unveiled its biggest-ever programme of flights for Newcastle Airport for summer 2023.

The popularity of this year’s services has allowed Loganair to base a second permanent Embraer ERJ-145 aircraft at Newcastle Airport, with new routes and additional frequencies starting from March 2023.

The expansion plans feature the return of up to double daily flights to Aberdeen, together with the addition of a Newcastle to Oslo via Aberdeen route, where passengers boarding at Newcastle can stay on the plane until disembarkation in Norway.

The airline has also increased the frequency of its Southampton service from two to up to three flights daily. Back by popular demand is the Aberdeen to Southampton flight operating via Newcastle and customers will not need to leave the aircraft on the one-stop service. Customers will also be able to fly to Newquay and Bergen twice a week, while flights to Exeter have been boosted from three to up to five per week. Up to five flights per week will also operate between Newcastle and Stavanger.

Luke Lovegrove, Chief Commercial Officer at Loganair, said:This bumper schedule for 2023 underlines our commitment to Newcastle with our biggest ever programme for the city, offering customers more choice of destinations, frequency and capacity than ever before.

“It has been a very positive year for Loganair at Newcastle and we are excited to see that success continue into 2023.
