On Tuesday (May 25, 2021), Loganair, the UK’s largest regional airline, announced the launch of service between Edinburgh and Cardiff with five weekly return services starting August 2, 2021. The one hour and twenty-five minute flight will be operated with a 49-seat Embraer E145 regional jet. With the new Edinburgh-Cardiff route, Loganair restores the last major connection that was lost due to the March 2020 collapse of Flybe. To celebrate the route launch, Loganair is offering one-way fares from £49.99 including taxes and charges.

In Tuesday’s announcement, Loganair’s Chief Commercial Officer, Kay Ryan, said,

“I know many of our customers – both business and leisure - have been waiting for this service to resume, and we are very pleased to be able to add Cardiff to our Edinburgh roster. Importantly, these services fill gaps left by the collapse of Flybe, with almost every lost domestic destination now being restored by Loganair and other carriers over the coming months.”

Also commenting on the new route, Edinburgh Airport’s Aviation Director, Kate Sherry, said,

“We're excited to be reconnecting the capitals of Scotland and Wales, a route which will allow family members to reunite as well as enable people to enjoy a well-earned break in Edinburgh and Cardiff. It's been an extremely tough period and we know people are looking forward to enjoying some time away from home, and this is further good news as the airport looks to provide those opportunities for our passengers. Loganair is a valued partner and its confidence in Edinburgh Airport is welcome now and going forward.”

Cardiff Airport’s CEO, Spencer Birns, added,

“We're pleased that Loganair has stepped in to re-establish a vital connection between Wales and Scotland with a regular Cardiff-Edinburgh service. Customers will once again be able to fly easily for business and to visit friends and family, as well as have the opportunity to travel for a well-earned city break or to explore Scotland's beautiful scenery. It is a top priority for us to re-instate routes lost as a result of the pandemic, and we are delighted that Scotland's airline has announced this essential service for our customers, increasing regional connectivity from Wales. We look forward to working closely with the Loganair team going forward.”

Founded in 1962, Loganair is ‘Scotland’s Airline’ and the UK’s largest regional carrier. Since the collapse of Flybe in March 2020, Loganair has restored essential connectivity throughout the UK. The airline serves 40 destinations across Europe, Scandinavia and the British Isles with a fleet of Saab 340s, Twin Otters, Britten Norman Islanders, ATR 42-500s, ATR 72-600s, Embraer E135s and Embraer E145s.
