Oslo among new Loganair codeshare routes

SHETLAND is set to have another transport link to Norway thanks to a new codeshare deal between Loganair and its sister airline bmi regional.

The agreement will enable people to fly from Sumburgh Airport to Oslo via Aberdeen on a through-ticket, meaning they will only need to check in their bags once.

It will also offer similar trips from Sumburgh via Aberdeen to Bristol, Norwich and Esbjerg in Denmark.

Flights will run from Aberdeen to Oslo daily except on Mondays and Saturdays, while trips to Esbjerg are on offer every day apart from Thursdays and Saturdays.

Bmi regional’s Aberdeen to Bristol service is daily except Saturdays and there are two flights to Norwich during the week and one per day at the weekend.

Loganair commercial director Kay Ryan said: “We’re pleased to reach yet another major codeshare agreement, further enhancing the choice of destinations available through the airline’s network.

“These will significantly increase convenience for passengers of both Loganair and our sister airline, bmi regional – enabling travel between multiple destinations on a single ticket.

“It also adds to our offering from the north east of Scotland, extending routes into Denmark for the first time while opening-up connections to Norway’s capital city and England’s south west.”

Loganair has been flying in competition with Flybe on routes to and from Shetland since the former franchise partners split on 1 September.
