Loganair signs up three airline partnerships
Kay Ryan: ‘exciting deals’
Scotland’s Airline Loganair has seen its international connectivity further boosted by the signing of a series of partnerships.
Deals with Air France, Dutch giant KLM and Thomas Cook Airlines, known in the aviation industry as “interline agreements”, enable Loganair customers to through-ticket and to through-check baggage with where flights connect at Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Norwich.
Loganair is also close to signing agreements with Emirates and another three international airlines, which it will announce soon.
The moves are the latest in the company’s “Better Connected” programme.
It also complements codeshare arrangements Loganair already has in place with British Airways and its partner airlines at Manchester, offering connectivity to transatlantic routes, including Chicago and Philadelphia, with onward connections throughout the US with British Airways’ partner airlines.
Loganair’s commercial director Kay Ryan said: “These are exciting deals with some of the biggest names in international air travel.”
The latest announcement comes only weeks after it was revealed that easyJet’s global connections platform Worldwide by easyJet, of which Loganair was a founder member, had added three more airlines and seven more airports to its membership.
