Posted 6 March 2020 · Add Comment

Flights will all commence next week with the schedule released for sale imminently.
 
Nick Barton, CEO of Birmingham Airport said: “This is great news and we thank these carriers for responding to the situation with flybe to replace the capacity for Midlands’ customers.

"It demonstrates that airlines realise the strong Midlands market and we look forward to welcoming these new carriers to Birmingham in the coming weeks. We would reassure customers that we are continuing talks with other airlines to backfill the remaining flybe capacity.”

Customers formerly booked on flybe services on the same routes can make new bookings at www.loganair.co.uk and obtain a refund via their payment card provider for tickets booked with Flybe. 

In common with all other airlines, Loganair has no access to Flybe systems or customer data to be able to facilitate re-bookings.
