LOGANAIR have added 10 extra flights between Sumburgh and the airports in Edinburgh and Glasgow during the two week October break.
The airline said it was responding to advance bookings for the school holidays, which start on Friday 12 October.
A large influx of visitors are also expected for the Shetland Accordion and Fiddle Festival from 11 to 15 October and Wool Week, which runs from 8 to 14 October.
Loganair’s chief operating officer Phil Preston said demand for the period had exceeded expectation.
Additional flights between Glasgow and Shetland will operate on Saturday 13 October and Monday 15 October. An additional service between Edinburgh and Shetland will also operate on Saturday 13 October.
Flights between Glasgow and Shetland have also been added on Saturday 27 October, and from Edinburgh on Sunday 28 October.
The move has been welcomed by Promote Shetland whose manager Andy Steven said Loganair were reacting proactively. More information is available at www.Flybe.com/ads or on 0844 800 2855.
