British Airways Signs Codeshare Agreement with Scotland’s Loganair

British Airways has signed a new codeshare agreement with Scottish airline Loganair.

The agreement, which comes into effect on 1 September when Loganair begins operating as an independent airline, will enable customers from the Highlands and Islands to book directly onto services on British Airways’ global network at London’s Heathrow, Gatwick and City Airports, serving more than 200 destinations.

Loganair customers will be able to connect onto British Airways domestic services at Inverness, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen, flying on a “through ticket”, with the facility to check-in hold baggage at their departure airport straight through to their destination.

Loganair flights between the Highlands and Islands airports and Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness under the new codeshare agreement will be eligible under the Scottish Governments Air Discount Scheme.

The new Loganair services to and from Manchester will also be included in the codeshare partnership, enabling customers to take advantage of new connections from points including Glasgow, Inverness and Norwich onto the growing family of British Airways services at the north-west hub.

Under the agreement, British Airways is operating a codeshare with Loganair for the first time as an independent airline, although the two companies have had a business relationship that has stretched back over a quarter of a century.

The airlines operated as franchise partners between 1994 and 2008 and have operated a codeshare agreement under the Loganair/Flybe franchise.

Rishi Kapoor, British Airways’ Head of Alliances, said “We are delighted to be strengthening our business relationship with Loganair with an agreement that will benefit the customers of both airlines. We believe the new codeshare agreement will bring enormous benefits to the Highlands and Islands, significantly boosting the region’s economy by extending the global reach of the area’s businesses and communities through British Airways’ world-wide network with flights serving more than 200 destinations from Heathrow, Gatwick and London City airports. Additionally, it will boost the region’s inbound tourism sector by making it even easier for visitors from all over the world to travel to some of the most remote and beautiful parts of Scotland.” 

Loganair’s Managing Director Jonathan Hinkles said, “This agreement will offer new travel options to customers connecting via Inverness and Manchester, together with excellent connections between British Airways’ global network and Loganair’s extensive services in the Highlands and Islands.”
