Flights operating key regional routes to London will move to Heathrow from next month, Loganair has announced.

Subject to Government approval, it will move its Dundee service from London City Airport to and its City of Derry service from Stansted, effective 6 May.

The switch has been made possible after Loganair gained additional slots at Heathrow following the demise of Flybe.

Both flights will be in and out of Terminal 2.

In addition, same-plane services from Kirkwall Airport in the Orkney Islands and Sumburgh Airport in the Shetland Islands via Dundee to London will also move to Heathrow.

There will be some small adjustments to the timetable, with morning flights now leaving Dundee at 07:00 and evening flights returning from Heathrow at 18:50, and morning flights leaving City of Derry at 06:35 instead of the current 06:50.

Loganair described the move as a ‘gamechanger’.

Chief Executive Jonathan Hinkles said: “Alongside excellent ground transport links into central London, the new range of global flight connections will bring new inward investment opportunities and tourism into the UK’s regions, together with enabling travellers to use their local airport to fly worldwide for the first time.”
