With the demise of Stobart Air, various routes are now being picked up by other airlines. One of these is Dublin to Aberdeen, which is going to be serviced by Scotland’s Loganair.

Loganair has been around for quite some time, having been founded in 1962. Over the years, it has operated as a franchise airline for British Airways, flyBe and others. Nowadays it operates as a stand alone airline on various regional routes around the UK, Ireland and Europe.

Loganair Dublin to Aberdeen

The new flights will start on 5 September 2021, operating four times a week on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. This is planned to increase to daily services from 28 March 2022.

Immediately after this from 24 April 2022, flights will increase to nine times weekly, with an additional flight on Monday and Friday to cater for business demand. Connecting flights are also going to be offered from Sumburgh and Kirkwall.

Operating the services will be 49 seat Embraer 145 jet aircraft, which will be an improvement over the turboprops used by the former operator. With pricing starting at less than £/€70 each way, it should be welcomed by the market.

Loganair will also be operating to Inverness and Teeside from Dublin in the summer of 2022. Perhaps we will see more routes coming down the line in future.

Overall Thoughts

Connectivity between the UK and Ireland is always important, due to the historical links between the two nations. It is good to see that the lost links from the Stobart Air closure are being replaced.

British Airways are codesharing with Loganair on some routes and it would be expected that Aer Lingus would follow suit. That would make a lot of sense really.
