Scottish regional carrier Loganair is altering some of its UK operations for the winter 2019/2020 season. More specifically, the carrier will swap London airports on one route, as well as reducing service to Carlisle (CAX).
As reported by RoutesOnline, at the launch of the 2019/2020 winter season, Loganair will operate its Derry (LDY) route to London to Southend (SEN). Currently, the carrier operates from LDY to London’s Stansted Airport (STN). As of 27 October 2019, however, the carrier will switch to Southend, which will continue on the same daily basis. Each of the daily frequencies will continue to be operated by the carrier’s ERJ145 aircraft.
In addition to changing its Derry operation to London, the carrier is also reducing its service from Belfast City (BHD) to Carlisle (CAX) and from Dublin (DUB) to Carlisle (CAX). As of 9 September 2019 for both routes, Loganair will reduce from 5x to 4x weekly service, with Saturday service being completely cancelled. The carrier will continue operating nonstop service between CAX and London (SEN).
With the airline’s decision to pull its winter seasonal Derry service out of Stansted, it will leave Dundee (DND) as its only STN-originating service. The move is becoming a more common one at London’s fastest-growing airport, Southend. As more carriers — especially low-cost carriers — move to SEN, travellers should expect to see more frequencies and destinations from the airport.
Loganair is based at Glasgow Airport, though it also has hubs throughout the rest of the UK. It’ll operate 13 routes from SEN once it makes the switch.
