Loganair to pull flights from Belfast City Airport until February

Loganair operates four routes from Belfast City Airport.

SCOTTISH Loganair is to pull all flights from Belfast City Airport until February in response to the latest stringent Covid-19 restrictions.

The regional airline currently operate routes from Belfast to Aberdeen, Inverness, Glasgow and Dundee.

It said the move was in response to statements by Boris Johnson and Nicola Sturgeon on Saturday.

“Following the announcements by the Prime Minister and First Minister around the spread of a new variant of the Covid-19 virus, the travel restrictions will lead to many customers being unable to continue with plans over the coming weeks, and the Christmas period in particular."

Loganair said it will continue to operate its publicly subsidised operation between City of Derry Airport and London Stansted, but warned that timetables may still be changed.

The scaled back operation will come into effect at 6am on Tuesday (December 22) and last until February 1 2021.
