Loganair is growing its Heathrow presence, with two new routes to add to the existing Isle of Man service.
There is a big push on City of Derry, with three flights per day Monday to Friday and two per day at the weekends.
This replaces the current Derry to Stansted route and is underwritten by a Government grant.
The second route is Dundee. There will be two flights per day Monday to Friday and one flight on Sunday.
This replaces the existing Dundee to London City route.
Both routes start on 6th May.
Loganair CEO Jonathan Hinkles said:
The move to Heathrow truly is a game-changer for UK regional air services. Alongside excellent ground transport links into central London, the new range of global flight connections will bring new inward investment opportunities and tourism into the UK’s regions, together with enabling travellers to use their local airport to fly worldwide for the first time.
The airline is using slots leased from British Airways, although the flights do not appear to be part of the Loganair / BA codeshare agreement and are not bookable on ba.com. (EDIT: comments below suggest that BA codeshares are now bookable, at least if there is a connection involved.)
