Loganair and Flybe launch new Aberdeen?Cardiff flights

21st April 2009 - 18:23 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Flybe franchise partner Loganair has launched the first ever non-stop flight between Aberdeen and Cardiff.

Services are now under way with one return flight a day, six days per week – Sunday to Friday. The new service brings a welcome boost to both regions and marks the ninth route that Flybe and Loganair provide from Aberdeen.

The new route offers a convenient connection for people commuting between Wales and Aberdeen, especially those working in the oil and gas industries, both hugely important to the economies of both regions. The service is also expected to meet the growing demands of business travellers, students, tourists and local residents travelling to and from Aberdeen and Cardiff.

Jonathan Hinkles, Loganair’s commercial director, commented, “Journeys between south Wales and Aberdeen have, up to now, been extremely challenging despite the strong business links between the two regions. We’re delighted that the first ever non-stop Aberdeen to Cardiff flights have already proven highly popular with customers, judging by the strong advance bookings for the new route.”

The 34-seat Saab 340 departs Aberdeen at 1300, arrives in Cardiff at 1445 and is operated under the Flybe banner. Return flights depart Cardiff at 1515 and arrive in Aberdeen at 1700.

Flybe/Loganair also fly from Aberdeen to London Gatwick, Birmingham, Southampton, Belfast City, Leeds Bradford, Exeter, Kirkwall in Orkney and Sumburgh in Shetland.
