Loganair offers free flight change to festive travellers

Loganair is telling customers they can switch flights in case flights on 23-24 December are disrupted by strong winds.

LOGANAIR is offering anyone who has flights booked on the last two days before Christmas the opportunity to switch to an earlier travel date if they wish because strong winds are forecast.

The airline said that, while the forecast could still change, it wanted to do what it could to ensure passengers are able to get to where they want to be over the festive period.


It is waiving the normal change fee and also won’t charge the difference in fares between flights, saying that if the present forecasts materialise it “may cause disruption to our flights”.

The company said: “Although there’s plenty of time between now and then for the weather forecasts to change or for the weather fronts bringing these strong winds to miss Scotland completely, we want to offer you as much peace of mind as we can for your important Christmas journey.

“If you hold a reservation on a Flybe flight operated by Loganair on 23 or 24 December within Scotland, you can transfer your booking to any Loganair flight on the same route departing as early as tomorrow (Tuesday 20 December).”

Passengers will be permit to change to any earlier flights where seats are still available.

Loganair stressed that its flights would be unaffected by strike action being staged by ground handling company Swissport, as its flights are handled by Menzies Aviation.
