British Airways has expanded its partnership with Loganair, adding 18 new routes to the codeshare agreement.

BA customers will now have access to a total of 38 of Loganair’s UK routes. These include:

  • Aberdeen to Belfast City, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, and Southampton
  • City of Derry to London and Liverpool
  • Cornwall Airport Newquay to Manchester
  • Exeter to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle
  • Isle of Man to Birmingham, Edinburgh and Manchester
  • Inverness to Birmingham
  • Norwich to Aberdeen and Edinburgh
  • Teesside to Southampton

BA customers travelling from Aberdeen or the Isle of Man to Manchester will also be able to connect onto BA’s codeshare flights on other carriers, including Oneworld partners, to destinations including New York, Barbados and Orlando.

Members of British Airways’ Executive Club programme can also earn Avios and Tier points when booking onto the selected routes operated by Loganair.

This news comes as Loganair celebrates its 60th birthday, making it the oldest UK airline still operating under its original name.

Loganair’s chief executive Jonathan Hinkles said:

“We’re delighted to mark Loganair’s 60th anniversary with the expansion of our partnership with British Airways. Today’s addition of no fewer than 18 routes is great news for connectivity to and from the UK regions, and we’re confident that the ability to enjoy Executive Club benefits and a new range of seamless flight connections when flying on selected Loganair routes will bring welcome new choice for British Airways’ customers when flying in the UK regions.

“The development cements what we believe to be the longest-running relationship between two UK airlines, and it’s a partnership which will continue to deliver for customers throughout the UK.”

Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ director of network and alliances, added:

“It is great news to be expanding our longstanding codeshare agreement with Loganair. This will create better connectivity and offer more choice for our customers between UK regions and destinations all over the world thanks to our expansive global route network and Loganair’s extensive regional services.”

The airline launched a codeshare on the Teesside-London service last June:
