Loganair to launch Glasgow services from Cardiff

Loganair has announced it is introducing flights from Cardiff to Glasgow.

Loganair is set to commence a year-round, daily schedule on February 27 – designed to enable business or leisure trips of different durations – including weekends, long weekends and short breaks.

Operated by a 49-seat Embraer 145 jet aircraft with a flight time of only one hour and 15 minutes between Scotland and Wales.

Glasgow is a popular tourist city and the number one retail destination outside of London. Home to one of Europe’s largest art collections, top-quality restaurants and world-renowned nightlife, visitors quickly fall into love with the city and its unique charm.

It generated £41.1 billion GVA in 2017, experiencing significant economic growth in recent years across globally competitive sectors including life sciences, creative industries, engineering and finance.

It is also a gateway to Scotland’s highlands and islands, with customers able to connect onto Loganair’s extensive network from Glasgow Airport which includes Shetland, Orkney, Islay, Tiree and the Outer Hebrides.
