UK carrier Loganair has been cruising ahead with regional growth, and even more so, in the early stages of the Summer 2023 season.
What we can see from trends is that the airline has comfortably exceeded pre-pandemic growth, and is performing very well.
Without further ado, let’s get into the numbers…
Loganair’s Strong Presence in the UK…
From May 30-June 6, the carrier handled 188 movements, which represents an increase of 9.94% compared to the same period last year.
Compared to 2019’s numbers, this is around 52 movements higher, which does highlight how far the airline has come during a volatile time.
Below is the last four weeks’ worth of data based on Loganair’s performance:
|Date||2019 Numbers||2022 Numbers||2023 Numbers||Percentage Difference (2023 vs. 2022)|
|May 2-9||115 movements||166 movements||168 movements||+1.20%|
|May 9-16||126 movements||161 movements||168 movements||+4.35%|
|May 16-23||114 movements||167 movements||177 movements||+5.99%|
|May 23-30||126 movements||168 movements||184 movements||+9.52%|
What we can see from the data is that the gap between 2023 and 2019 for Loganair is beginning to grow, and with that, the percentage differences rise with that as well.
The Last Couple of Months Represents Future Growth Opportunities…
In the last few months, Loganair has celebrated a few milestones and does represent what the future could look like for the carrier in the UK.
Back in March, the carrier celebrated its 30,000th passenger on the Isle of Man-Birmingham route and has afforded significant links with Emirates as a result.
Finally, Loganair celebrated its 350,000th passenger at Southampton Airport just last week, with such examples highlighting the market share that the airline is occupying.
What remains clear is that Loganair is destined for future growth, both in the short term and also in the long-term too.
