Loganair launches Glasgow to Edinburgh flights

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

For anyone keen to avoid the M8, Loganair has launched a new flight between Edinburgh and Glasgow. The 50 mile trip takes just 15 minutes.

This is not a permanent change. Struggling to fill direct flights, Loganair is picking up passengers in both cities before flying on to Stornoway or elsewhere. You can, however, buy tickets purely for the Edinburgh to Glasgow leg.

A similar flight is available between Inverness and Aberdeen, on the way to Kirkwall. This is a trip of around 85 miles.

Glasgow to Edinburgh is operated a 50-seat Embraer ERJ145, like the one pictured above.

    EDI-GLA seems to be “sold out” in both directions until 1st February !

      I read that to meaning the flight isn’t running until 01FEB.

      According to Google flights they seem to be £45-£49 each way depending on route Interesting to see BA is pretty much competitive on fare via London too if you’re in it for the avios and tier points.

    Westray to Papa Westray anyone?

    Jet2 seem to be doing EDI-GLA-xxx on some routes now too.
    But no edi-Gla fares.

    Flown DND-ABZ many years ago on Air Ecosse. Still have the wings badge I was given.
    Might be worth a trip on some of these intra-Scotland routes when we’re allowed to travel for leisure again.

    I once flew GLA-EDI on an Aer Lingus Regional ATR-72. It was meant to be a direct DUB-EDI service, but a diversion was made via GLA to drop off a part for a sister aircraft that was stranded there.
    I didn’t mind at all: flying slightly to the north of the M8 at relatively low altitude was an interesting and memorable experience.

    I once flew (1979) from Tangier to Gibraltar in an old (even then) Viscount.
