LONDON – Scottish carrier Loganair has announced an expansion at Aberdeen Airport (ABZ), which will create 20 new jobs at the Scottish airport.
The airline announced the start of a route to Oslo (OSL), Norway which will operate 6 times a week, Sunday through Friday.
The service will be operated year-round starting from June 13th.
This will be the 14th destination that Loganair operates to from Aberdeen.
The route will create 20 new pilot and cabin crew jobs in addition to engineers to carry out scheduled maintenance at its Aberdeen base.
The airline employs 120 people at the airport and over 100 indirectly.
Loganair CEO Jonathan Hinkles said: “We’re delighted to be adding Oslo flights at Loganair’s Aberdeen hub, restoring connectivity to the Norwegian capital for both business and leisure travelers.”
“It’s an important and long-standing route at Aberdeen and one which we’re pleased to step into following the cutbacks which other airlines have understandably made during the pandemic.
“Together with the new Oslo route, Loganair’s expansion at Aberdeen will see us offering our largest-ever schedule in Summer 2022.”
“It has been a pleasure and a privilege to welcome many new employees to our airline in recent weeks as we create new jobs to support this growth.”
“It has been a tough two years for the whole industry and it is clear that they’re hugely excited to be returning to the skies with Loganair.”
Operations director at Aberdeen International Airport, Mark Beveridge, added: “On the back of some great announcements from Loganair with their 60th-year celebrations, we warmly welcome this new service to Oslo.”
