Loganair and Flybe have announced a codeshare deal, rekindling their once-thriving relationship that broke down more than two years ago.

In terms of travel possibilities, the partnership will mean easier and more seamless connections within the U.K. and onwards to some European destinations — including bags checked through to a passenger’s final destination. Not only that, but the airlines say that with their codeshare, customers will be able to save money by booking one ticket with fewer Air Passenger Duty charges to pay than if the trip were to have been booked on two separate tickets.

Both carriers operate the majority of their flights from the same five airports: Aberdeen (ABZ), Edinburgh (EDI), Glasgow (GLA), Inverness (INV) and Manchester (MAN). These airports will predominantly act as connection hubs for the new relationship, linking passengers between other, smaller regional airports.

Loganair has a surprisingly extensive route network with the majority of which originating in Scotland and including European destinations such as Bergen (BGO), Donegal (CFN) and Tromsø (TOS). The airline also operates routes originating in other U.K. cities such as Newcastle (NCL) to Stavanger (SVG). Flybe has an extensive route network from destinations across the U.K., operated predominantly by Dash 8 aircraft.
