Air passengers travelling between Glasgow and Manchester can now reap the benefits of a 50 per-cent boost in service frequency, as Loganair officially flies solo.

Loganair, which has operated Flybe’s services between the two cities for eight-years, terminated its franchise agreement with the carrier last week.

It will now be operating up to six services a day on the route.

In addition to the six-a-day Manchester service, Loganair will be providing flights to Norwich, which it also previously operated under the Flybe franchise agreement.

In total, flights to Glasgow will operate 28 times a week, while Norwich will see 16 services per week.
