Extra Glasgow flights

LOGANAIR is to add four extra services between Shetland and Glasgow to cope with demand for flights to the central belt of Scotland.

The additional flights are on Mondays and Fridays starting on 4 November, and can be booked as of 19 August.

The Scottish airline said they were reacting to a surge in advance bookings.

The company’s chief operating officer Phil Preston said: “Glasgow has the best retail district in the UK outside of London, and these flights will definitely be a hit with Shetlanders looking to have a city break on the mainland.

“As an airline, we continually monitor customer demand and endeavour to manage our schedule accordingly, so we are sure these extra seats will be quickly snapped up by customers.

The new services will operate to the following timetable:

Glasgow – Sumburgh
Monday and Friday 10:45-12:15

Sumburgh – Glasgow
Monday and Friday 15:20-16:45
