Loganair has begun its summer schedule between Glasgow and Donegal, marking the start of a new year-round service that will provide essential connectivity between the two destinations.

The UK’s largest regional airline is now the only carrier offering a direct air link between the Northwest of Ireland and the UK.

Loganair’s summer schedule commenced yesterday, offering up to three flights weekly for most of the season. This route will continue through the winter, with flights available on Fridays and Sundays to facilitate weekend visits and ensure continuous connectivity.

Luke Lovegrove, Chief Commercial Officer at Loganair, said: “With up to three flights a week, we enabled greater travel opportunities between Glasgow and Donegal, and we expected to carry more customers this summer on the Donegal to Glasgow route than ever before.

“We were really happy to maintain service to Donegal throughout the winter, ensuring year-round connectivity between the UK and Northwest Ireland, and encouraged customers to book as early as possible to secure the best fares.”

Donegal Airport, located at Carrickfinn, is known for its spectacular views on approach and frequently ranks among the world’s most scenic landings. Loganair has operated flights to Donegal Airport since the early 1990s, and the relaunch of its Glasgow route in 2023 was warmly welcomed by many travellers.

Eilís Docherty, Managing Director of Donegal Airport, said: “Donegal Airport were delighted to welcome Loganair back for Summer 2024 and were looking forward to welcoming both new and existing customers to this route. We were expecting a busy summer season and the agreement to operate flights year-round met the demand for a direct air link between two closely connected regions.”


Throughout the summer, the service will operate up to three times per week and twice weekly from 28 October when the winter schedule begins.

Reservations for flights between Glasgow and Donegal can be made at loganair.co.uk, where full scheduling information is available, or through travel agents.

All fares include a 21kg luggage allowance, inflight refreshments, discounts for children aged 11 and under, and a mandatory carbon offset charge as part of the airline’s GreenSkies sustainability programme.
