Barra airport to get eight more services
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.
