London Southend Airport is to become the capital’s new gateway to Scotland following a milestone agreement with Scotland’s airline, Loganair, to provide routes from the airport to three destinations, starting from spring 2019.

The new routes from London’s favourite airport – as voted for by Which? readers – to Aberdeen, Glasgow and Stornoway, represent a major new network between the capital and Scotland.

Aberdeen and Glasgow will have three non-stop flights each way every weekday, together with a selection of weekend services, operated by Loganair’s Embraer 145 regional jet aircraft.

New, one-stop, same-plane services will also be introduced from Stornoway to London, providing direct services from the Highland & Island airports to London. There will also be convenient connections to flights to Barra, Benbecula, Islay, Kirkwall, Sumburgh and Tiree.

Glyn Jones, CEO of Stobart Aviation, said: “All of us at London Southend Airport look forward to welcoming Loganair as our newest airline in May, when these flights begin. With our own railway station just 100 paces from the terminal door, up to six trains an hour into London and our award-winning customer service, we expect these new routes to prove very popular with customers flying to and from Scotland.”

Loganair’s Managing Director Jonathan Hinkles said: “We’re incredibly excited to be offering the first new air links between London and Scotland in many years, linking three Scottish airports to London Southend. These new fast and frequent flights to London’s favourite airport, together with our inclusive checked baggage allowance and on-board service, make this a hugely significant development both for Scotland-London air links and for Loganair as Scotland’s Airline.”

Loganair will be the only airline flying between Scotland and London whose fares all include a 20kg checked baggage allowance. Flights to Glasgow and Stornoway will start on the 28th May. Aberdeen will get underway on the 12th May.
