Congratulations to Loganair, airline of the year

Norwich Airport has congratulated Loganair for scooping the Airline of the Year Gold Award at ERA’s (European Regions Airline Association) prestigious annual awards ceremony in Edinburgh.

The Scottish regional airline uses Norwich as its English operational base, with flights to Edinburgh and Manchester, and seasonal services to Jersey. Loganair was commended by the ERA judges for rebuilding its commercial infrastructure since its franchise agreement with Flybe ended in 2017, and for serving its community in remote areas of Scotland in tough and challenging conditions.

Norwich Airport managing director Richard Pace said: “To be crowned Airline of the Year by ERA is a fantastic achievement by Loganair, and Norwich Airport is proud to be their English operational base. They are an important operator from Norwich with direct flights to Edinburgh and Manchester, with onward connections around the world, and seasonal flights to Jersey, offering people even more choice from their local airport. Well done to Jonathan and his team.”

Jonathan Hinkles, Loganair’s Managing Director said: “Receiving an award of this calibre is a tremendous privilege, highlighting everything Loganair has achieved since flying solo last year. Everyone in the team has worked incredibly hard to build a regional airline providing sustainable and reliable services for the communities to which we fly. The foundations that we’ve laid over the last year will serve Loganair well for decades to come, and we’re very much looking forward to playing a leading role in the future of the UK’s regional air services.”
