Loganair started in Glasgow in the 1960s and grew rapidly, with services to the Highlands and Islands and then further afield, becoming Manchester Airport’s second-busiest carrier. Then, twenty-four years ago, it became a franchise airline operating services for British Airways and Flybe in those companies’ liveries. Now it has announced that, from this autumn, it will operate in its own right again, creating ‘a national airline for Scotland, headquartered in Scotland’. To this end, it has added a further SAAB 340, G-LGNZ, to its fleet.
