This does seem to have become a habit of Flybe's, nightmare for those planning ahead. Even though much of their bookings are probably at shorter notice it can't be a good thing having so much uncertainty about when flights are released, on top of being behind all other major airlines (?) in doing so.

With the world as it is and so many people choosing to staycation rather that foreign holidays surely the lack of a full summer schedule will have the effect of people booking elsewhere ?

adfly, they haven't just cancelled the franchise on a whim or because they felt like it, there are valid reasons why that isn't in the public domain.

Reversethrustset, I was referring to the rather disorganised schedule releases they have had over the last few years rather than the Loganair franchise. Apologies for any confusion.

Loganair have launched their Summer 2017 schedule, Quite a lot going on so have taken the keys points from press release.

A non-stop twice-weekly service will link Glasgow and the Norwegian city of Bergen – known as “the gateway to the fjords”. The Glasgow-based airline will operate the new route on Mondays and Fridays from May 5 to September 25 2017. It’s part of a sizeable expansion which will also see the airline’s schedule to Bergen bolstered by extra flights from Shetland and new direct flights from Orkney.

Scotland’s Airline has also revealed the first regular service in recent years linking Shetland and Aberdeen with Vagar, the airport of the Faroe Islands, again starting in May. The service will operate on Fridays and Sundays from May 26 to September 3 2017, and Loganair will carefully evaluate demand on the route with a view to moving to year-round operations in future.


An overall growth of 20% in seat capacity to and from Glasgow.

A fourth weekday flight between Glasgow and Manchester, plus a new Sunday lunchtime service - providing enhanced connections to domestic UK destinations and the expanding range of long-haul destinations available via Manchester.

A fourth daily service between Inverness and Manchester, also opening up the wide range of connections available from Manchester.

An 18% increase in seats between Glasgow and Stornoway through introduction of larger Saab 2000 50-seat aircraft on three of the four weekday round trips - and use of the larger aircraft on selected weekend flights between Glasgow and Benbecula for the first time.

A third weekday flight from Glasgow to Islay, and a second on Sundays, opening up a wide range of new domestic and international connections to and from Islay.

New convenient one-stop, same-plane services linking Manchester with Sumburgh and Stornoway, cutting journey times and offering lower fares than connecting flights.

A second weekly Bergen service from Sumburgh, operating on Tuesdays between May 30 and August 29 and complementing the Saturday service (13May – 02 September)

A non-stop service linking Kirkwall on Orkney with Bergen on Saturdays between May 13 and September 02 while also operating a complementary Tuesday connection via Sumburgh.

Expansion of services between Edinburgh and Wick with the introduction of a second flight on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays.

A new timetable for Edinburgh-Stornoway services to ensure that the route remains commercially viable despite new charges for airlines being introduced by Edinburgh Airport in April 2017.

Additional weekend flights between Glasgow and Kirkwall - with a new Friday night southbound service from Kirkwall and an extra Sunday evening return flight, coupled to larger aircraft deployed on Saturday services.

More seats between Glasgow and Sumburgh through use of larger 50-seater Saab 2000 aircraft on one of two daily flights during the summer.

Developing use of Glasgow as a hub airport to link Loganair’s Highlands & Islands network with its growing network of services to Manchester and Leeds Bradford.

Continued expansion outside Scotland with the introduction of a new four-times weekly service linking Loganair’s base at Norwich with the Channel Island of Jersey.

Be interesting to see whether BE leave MAN-GLA (in particular) to LC, whether they want to compete.

I received it aswell.

The only other thing it says is "we'll soon be launching some exciting offers", so maybe it's just another promotion.

Guess we'll find out soon enough, but it doesn't say when either!

It's an old marketing trick - you tell people there's going to be a big announcement to get people's attention, but when the time comes it's almost always something pretty trivial.

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT TOMORROW with airlines usually ends up being something like 'we're going to add an extra weekly rotation on a route which we happen to already fly 5 times per day'.

Flybe is a company listed on a stock exchange. There are very strict rules about the way information that may affect the share price is disclosed. If marketing are using the 'big announcement' trick it will almost certainly not be anything particularly significant to Flybe.

If they want to stay in the air it should be something like "FLYBE ditches jets & returns to regional UK flying, like what we did best". But in reality it will be a bunch of random FLYBE routes or an extra frequency on one current route. Or maybe they've sacked James Martin and will sell Heston Blumenthal sandwiches? I'm struggling to contain my excitement.

BIG Announcement

The social media team have been saying the summer schedule will be released by the end of November.

No doubt it's that, maybe tied in with some Black Friday offers!? That seems the rage these days.

So much for a big announcement!

Is that it!

Flybe : The fastest way from A to flybe

I was hoping it would at least be something about the S17 Schedule!

Well the tactic worked, it got people talking and that's what these sorts of online announcements are meant to achieve!!
