Loganair to Launch New Service Between Norwich and Exeter From July 12, 2021

Loganair will increase connectivity between East Anglia and the South-West of England with new service between Norwich and Exeter starting July 12, 2021. The route will be operated four times weekly during summer on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Today (April 14, 2021), Loganair, the UK’s largest regional airline, announced the launch of enhanced connectivity between West Anglia and the South-West of England with new service between Norwich and Exeter. Starting July 12, 2021, the carrier will offer four weekly flights on the route which will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. From September, the route will operate twice-weekly on Mondays and Fridays. The 70-minute flight will be serviced with a 49-seat Embraer E145 jet, far more convenient than a rail connection through London or an exhausting 320-mile road trip.


In Wednesday’s announcement, Loganair’s Chief Executive, Jonathan Hinkles, said,


“We are very pleased to expand our commitment to Norwich and Exeter with this direct service, connecting two important UK business and leisure locations. We’re sure this new connection will be warmly welcomed by customers travelling for work reasons and by those - just as soon as they can – travelling to visit friends and family. The need for domestic connectivity has been clearly recognised by the UK Government with its stated intention to reform Air Passenger Duty on domestic flights. There is no doubt the high level of APD has historically rendered such links as Norwich to Exeter economically difficult to sustain.

“The fact that 42 of Flybe’s 46 lost domestic routes have now been restored also shows the resilience and the importance of supporting the UK’s domestic airlines and this ‘team effort’ across the industry is something of which we should we all be proud.”


Also commenting on the new route, Exeter Airport’s Operations Director, Stephen Wiltshire, said,


“It’s marvelous that Loganair is re-establishing the link between Exeter and Norwich, which is a key route for business, tourism and reconnecting family and friends kept apart by the pandemic. Importantly, this launch fills another gap left by the collapse of Flybe, with almost every domestic destination from Exeter now being restored by Loganair and other carriers over the coming months.”


Norwich Airport’s Managing Director, Richard Pace, added,


“We’re delighted Loganair is re-establishing the link between Norwich and Exeter. We also welcome Loganair’s decision to restart the route to Edinburgh in July. In launching these routes, Loganair is putting its trust in the UK Government to deliver on its promise to reduce domestic Air Passenger Duty which is critical to the recovery and sustainability of domestic flying.”


Fares on the new Norwich-Exeter route start from only £49.99, including taxes and fees. The new service links existing destinations, as Loganair currently serves Norwich from Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Jersey, while Exeter is served from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle. Additionally, Loganair is advancing the launch of Edinburgh-Norwich service from September to July 12, 2021. This summer, Loganair and six other airlines will operate 42 of the 46 UK routes operated by Flybe, thereby successfully safeguarding essential UK connectivity.
