Six new Loganair routes from Aberdeen, Glasgow and Newcastle have been announced.

The Aberdeen flights are Brussels, Haugesund in Norway, and East Midlands.

A Glasgow to Cardiff route is also being launched, alongside Newcastle to Bergen and Guernsey.

Loganair managing director Jonathan Hinkles said: These new routes further expand the airline's reach across both the UK and Northern Europe."

Mr Hinkles said the routes out of Aberdeen reflected the importance of the oil and gas industry.

"The energy market offers a lot of potential and these routes ensure Newcastle and Aberdeen are connected with Bergen and Haugesund, which in combination with recently announced services from Norwich mean these key energy regions are now easily within reach of one another as part of Loganair's overall network," he said.

"Notably, I'm extremely pleased to be able to announce a new route to Aberdeen from East Midlands after being welcomed as the airport's newest operator only last week - quickly building our presence in the region."

All of the services will be operated by Embraer 145 or 135 jets.

Mr Hinkles added: "We're also excited to begin serving Cardiff, operating flights between Scotland and Wales' biggest cities - a route which is as important for business as it is for leisure."
