A NEW air service between Leeds-Bradford Airport and Glasgow has been launched.
The weekday service by airline Loganair offers two services a day in each direction.
From September 2, there will be Sunday evening services.
The service will link Yorkshire with Scotland, as well as providing the opportunity for travellers to link up with connecting flights to places such as Stornoway, Kirkwall, Sumburgh, Tiree, Barra and Benbecula.
Loganair’s chief operating officer Jonathan Hinkles said: “We are delighted to launch services between these two airports. Loganair has every confidence that its successful formula will revitalise this crucial air service between Scotland and West Yorkshire and help to ensure that business links between these regions are maintained and developed.”
Tony Hallwood, commercial director of Leeds-Bradford Airport, said: “I am pleased that the schedule is already proving attractive to both business and leisure traffic.
“This is another positive step in the airport’s strategy to deliver sustainable connectivity for Yorkshire.”
Loganair will use 34-seat Saab 340B aircraft on the route.
