Loganair’s summer schedule between Glasgow and Donegal has commenced as part of a flying programme that will now deliver vital year-round connectivity between the two destinations.
The UK’s largest regional airline is the only carrier offering a direct air link between the Northwest of Ireland and the UK.
Loganair’s summer schedule returned yesterday [Sunday 19 May] offering up to three flights weekly for the majority of the season. The route will continue through the winter, with flights taking place Fridays and Sundays, enabling weekend visits and providing sought-after year-round connectivity. 
Luke Lovegrove, Chief Commercial Officer, Loganair, said: ” With up to three flights a week, we are enabling greater travel opportunities between Glasgow and Donegal, and we expect to carry more customers this summer on the Donegal to Glasgow than ever before.
“We’re really happy to be maintaining service to Donegal throughout the winter, ensuring year-round connectivity between the UK and Northwest Ireland and would encourage customers to book as early as possible to secure the best fares.”
Donegal Airport, at Carrickfinn, is renowned for its spectacular views on approach, and regularly appears at the top of lists for the world’s most scenic landing. Loganair has flown to Donegal Airport since the early 1990s and the relaunch of its Glasgow route in 2023 was warmly welcomed by a variety of travellers. 
Eilís Docherty, Managing Director, Donegal Airport, said: “Donegal Airport are delighted to welcome Loganair back for Summer 2024 and are looking forward to welcoming both new and existing customers to this route.  We are expecting a busy summer season and the agreement to operate flights year-round will meet the demand for a direct air link between two closely connected regions”.
Throughout the summer the service will operate up to three times per week and twice weekly from 28th October when the winter schedule begins.
