Enhanced wellbeing - fly with confidence

The continued safety and wellbeing of our passengers and crew is always our highest priority which is why we have implemented enhanced wellbeing measures which includes all customers aged 11 and above wearing face masks.

There is an exemption to the requirement for a face covering for customers with medical grounds, such as respiratory difficulties. If you meet the exemption requirements, you may be asked to present supporting government documentation

This is one element of a series of enhanced wellbeing measures we have implemented which include:

  • Microbe Shield surface protection in the cabin
  • Aircraft touch point sanitation procedures
  • Cabin air is continuously replenished with fresh air every 5 - 7 minutes, the cabin may be slightly cooler than normal, therefore you may wish to have a jumper to hand
  • Seat allocation to maximise the distance between passengers in the cabin where possible.
  • Reduced contact points, with the exception of safety cards, all seat-back literature has been removed and there is no inflight service

We look forward to welcoming you on board.

Loganair and Blue Islands Partnership to Connect Channel Islands & Uk Regions

Loganair and Blue Islands Partnership to Connect Channel Islands & Uk Regions

Loganair, the UK’s largest regional airline, and Blue Islands, the growing Channel-Islands based airline, have formed an extensive partnership to offer their customers a broad new range of regional air connections across the UK, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

The airlines will provide seamless connections between their flights, enabling customers to buy a single ticket to benefit from lower fares and guaranteed connections on a wide range of links between Scotland, the North East and the Isle of Man to the south coast and the Channel Islands.

The new links will soon be available to book via the respective airlines’ websites and will re-build connectivity to help boost the UK and Channel Islands’ economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. Frequent connections with a focus on links via hubs at Southampton and Manchester will link points such as Inverness with Exeter; the Isle of Man with Southampton; and Guernsey and Jersey with Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle.

Loganair operates 43 aircraft, predominantly on routes to, from and within Scotland, and is the UK’s largest regional airline. Blue Islands operates five aircraft and is now expanding its network from its traditional Channel Island bases, adding two UK bases with new services including Manchester to Exeter and Manchester to Southampton following the failure of Flybe in early March, just before the Covid-19 pandemic.

The ability to book journeys in a single ticket through either airline’s website will enable customers to save the double Air Passenger Duty which would apply if tickets for the flights were purchased separately, as well as offering guaranteed connections in the event of weather or other disruptions to their travel plans. Together with new routes, fare options and a generous frequent flyer programme, Blue Islands has also recently completed its move to the same Videcom booking system as that successfully used by Loganair. This provides certainty of systems connectivity to assure a seamless transfer between flights for customers and their checked baggage.

Commenting on the new partnership, Loganair’s Chief Executive Jonathan Hinkles said,

We’re delighted to be working with Blue Islands to offer this new range of connections for customers throughout the UK. Providing dependable air services to communities throughout the UK, the Channel Islands and Isle of Man is a core part of the ‘DNA’ of both airlines, and by joining up our networks, we can help many more customers reach their destination.

Blue Islands’ Chief Executive Rob Veron said,

We are excited to form this new partnership with Loganair, hand in hand with a significant expansion of our own route network after 15 years of Channel Islands’ centred operations. It further enhances Blue Islands’ commitment to deliver robust and reliable regional air connectivity. We are delighted to be able to offer customers an extended route network with the peace of mind of guaranteed connections, Air Passenger Duty savings and the easy convenience of checked-through hold luggage in a single ticket.
Whether flying for business, leisure or visiting friends and family, this partnership once again boosts regional connectivity for the communities we serve in the Channel Islands and the UK using our Manchester and Southampton hubs to connect to destinations on the Loganair route network. Furthermore, it will provide vital support for our visitor economies, particularly in the Channel Islands as we can welcome Loganair customers from Scotland and the north east onto our services to Guernsey and Jersey.

Flights will soon be available to book via www.loganair.co.uk and www.blueislands.com and we look forward to sharing further updates soon.
