Shetland link flying high with extra services
AN airline is set to add extra flights to its services between the Capital and the Shetland Islands.
Loganair, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary, has seen an increase in bookings ahead of the October school holiday period.
Shetland schools break for two weeks from October 12, and many islanders use the time to head off on an extended holiday via Edinburgh Airport. There is also a large influx of visitors to the islands during October, with tourists visiting the popular annual Shetland Accordion and Fiddle Festival and Wool Week celebrations.
Andy Steven, from Promote Shetland, said “It’s excellent to see Loganair is extending its services between Shetland and Scotland’s capital city during October.
“Shetland has never been so well connected to the Scottish mainland and by further enhancing the service the airline offers, Loganair is displaying the ability to proactively react to demand through good knowledge of the destinations it serves.
“I hope these extra flights will encourage even more visitors to come and explore our stunning islands for themselves.”
