Barra air­port to get eight more ser­vices

The Oban Times - - News -

LOGANAIR is to of­fer another eight ser­vices be­tween Barra and Glas­gow this sum­mer, in ad­di­tion to the 17 ex­tra ro­ta­tions it an­nounced in Jan­uary.

The sched­ule will be en­hanced dur­ing May and June, fol­low­ing a surge of book­ings for the route.

The car­rier has seen a 38 per cent growth in reser­va­tions to Barra dur­ing the peak June-Au­gust sea­son com­pared to the same pe­riod in 2016. It is also re­port­ing a 13 per cent in­crease in book­ings to Stornoway and Ben­bec­ula, while there is a 26 per cent rise in tick­ets from the Western Isles to Glas­gow.

The ser­vice lands at Barra’s beach air­port, where flight times are sub­ject to the tides. It’s a hugely pop­u­lar jour­ney for hol­i­day­mak­ers, avi­a­tion en­thu­si­asts and lo­cals alike, and the ex­tra flights will help to meet high de­mand dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son.
