Scottish airline Loganair has begun flying into London Heathrow for the first time.
It has transferred its regular link between Isle of Man and London from City Airport (which is temporarily closed) to Heathrow.
Readers will be pleased to learn that Loganair will be using Terminal 5, the home of British Airways, which has consolidated its Heathrow operations at T5.
The single flight (which operates on most days) is scheduled as follows:
- BA3285 Isle of Man to London Heathrow, departs 1225, arrives 1400
- BA3288 London Heathrow to Isle of Man, departs 1840, arrives 2000
Loganair’s CEO Jonathan Hinkles posted the above image on his LinkedIn page, and the carrier has provided Business Traveller with the following statement from Hinkles:
“The London City to Isle of Man service that Loganair normally operates for BA City Flyer has been moved to London Heathrow temporarily, at least until the end of April.
“London City has closed [temporarily] and BA has asked us to run the Isle of Man’s essential air service to Heathrow in the short term, so as to keep the route open.”
Isle of Man has long wanted an air link to London Heathrow. Last year Flybe restarted the link after a gap of 20 years but of course Flybe is no longer.
Readers wishing to make reservations will find schedule details and so on available on ba.com. At the time of writing (Wednesday evening) these flights were not displayed on Loganair’s website.
