Loganair’s United Airlines deal smooths US journeys
Loganair: new deal
Travellers from the Highlands and Islands heading to American and beyond will benefit from a new deal between Scottish airline Loganair and the US carrier, United Airlines.
The ‘interline agreement’, enables Loganair customers to travel via Glasgow and Edinburgh – and also Manchester and Dublin – onwards to the United States with through-check in and protection in case of delay.
From Scotland, United Airlines operates direct flights to its hubs at New York/Newark, Chicago O’Hare and Washington/Dulles, providing extensive onward connections across the US, Canada, the Caribbean and Latin America. Last year the airline carried 158 million passengers while operating a fleet of around 770 aircraft, making it one of the world’s largest airlines..
Kay Ryan, Loganair’s commercial director said: “The addition of United Airlines to our “Better Connected” programme means residents in the Highlands and Islands can travel to North America and beyond, easier than ever before”
The news follows a recent announcement of an agreement reached with Norwegian airline Wideroe to enhance connectivity between the UK and Norway and forms part of Loganair’s ongoing strategy to enhance its worldwide connectivity.
Loganair already has agreements with British Airways, KLM, Qatar, Emirates, Turkish Airlines and Air France, connecting its destinations to every continent across the globe.
