Summer flights on sale
Loganair and Flybe’s summer 2014 flights have gone on sale, and include extra flights between Stornoway and Glasgow for the summer holidays. Services up to and including 9th September are now bookable, with flights after that date being made available in early December. The additional frequency between Glasgow and Stornoway at the weekends during the Summer school holiday period will, said Phil Preston, Loganair’s chief operating officer mean making the most of a summer when Scotland will be in focus with the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, Homecoming 2014 and the Ryder Cup. Mr Preston said: “We hope our network of routes will encourage tourists to extend their visit to include a trip to the Western Isles, and for island residents to fly south and enjoy the sporting events in Glasgow”
