SHETLAND’s transport links have further opened up after Loganair flights to and from Glasgow and Edinburgh restarted this week.

Flights linking the two cities and Sumburgh Airport returned on Monday.

For the Glasgow service there will initially be five return flights a week, while the Edinburgh service flies via Kirkwall on daily return flights.

A spokesperson for Loganair said the airline plans to increase the frequency of the flights potentially from August, but that is dependent on booking levels.

For a number of months the only scheduled flights have been to and from Aberdeen and Kirkwall as Loganair ran a skeleton service during the pandemic.

The NorthLink ferry service linking Shetland with Orkney and Aberdeen meanwhile recently opened up travel to all passengers when the limit on the distance people could travel in Scotland was removed.
