Loganair adds new international routes from Edinburgh


Loganair, Scotland’s Airline, today announced the launch of two new international routes to Edinburgh – linking Scotland’s Capital with Hanover, the largest city in the Lower Saxony region of Germany and to the western Danish city of Esbjerg.

The new flights will be on sale at from today (Monday 16 December).

Flights to Hanover will take off from Edinburgh on Friday 17 April 2020, just in time for the Hanover Messe, one of Europe’s largest trade fairs which attracts over 6,500 exhibitors and 250,000 visitors. There will be up to five non-stop jet flights per week from Edinburgh, with core services on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays and an additional Saturday flight operating between June and September.

Later in the year, Hanover plays host to the second largest Oktoberfest in the world, with nearly a million visitors each year. Together with year-round business potential in the automotive and transport and logistics sectors, incoming tourism potential for German visitors to Scotland and Scottish visitors to the Lower Saxony region, Loganair is targeting over 12,000 passengers on the new route in its first year.

Denise Hill, Head of Engagement at VisitScotland said:

Flights from Edinburgh to the Danish city of Esbjerg – already served by Loganair from Aberdeen – will take off from Thursday 7 May 2020. It’s an important centre for the offshore industry – oil and gas, and renewable energies – and a major export port in western Denmark. Flights will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, with the weekend schedules specifically arranged to meet the demands of leisure travellers heading from Denmark to Scotland for weekend golfing breaks.

Jonathan Hinkles, Chief Executive of Loganair, said:
