Loganair has relaunched its service to the small Scottish island of Fair Isle, as well as improved timings on other routes for summer 2024.

Fair Isle is one of the UK’s smallest airports and is run by the National Trust for Scotland. 

Located between Orkney and Shetland, Fair Isle is home to a permanent population of around 60 people and is one of Britain’s most remote inhabited islands.

The island is famed for its bird watching but its only tourist accommodation, Fair Isle Bird Observatory, suffered a devastating fire in March 2019, forcing its closure.

The internationally renowned research centre is now set to reopen from 2024, prompting Loganair to reinstate its service next summer.

The service, from Kirkwall, will operate twice weekly from 20 May 2024 until 2 September.

Loganair’s summer 2024 schedule will also see a weekend return service on its Newcastle to Southampton route, improved timings on services from Edinburgh to Sumburgh and Exeter, as well as a larger 72-seat ATR-72 deployed on busier routes.
