LOGANAIR is continuing with its efforts to build its public image as Scotland’s airline following the split from long term franchise partner Flybe earlier this year.
The airline said on Thursday that it had struck a partnership deal with CLAN, which will see the cancer support charity benefit from cheaper flights, inflight donations and monies raised through fund raising activities by Loganair staff.
CLAN operates support centres for those affected by cancer across the northeast of Scotland including Shetland and Orkney.
Loganair’s commercial director Kay Ryan said the company wanted a charity partner that operated in the communities where the airline works.
“It became obvious that CLAN was the perfect choice, linking as it does Aberdeen, where we have a main base, and Orkney and Shetland, where we have stations and have provided lifeline services for many years,” she said.
CLAN chief executive Dr Colette Backwell said she was pleased to entering this new partnership “which will help us to continue our work supporting people affected by cancer across extremely diverse and often remote geographical areas”.
