Charge a great deal and need only a few passengers or discount heavily and hope for full aircraft?

Well, the aircraft only has 49 seats. We know (and more importantly so do Loganair) from Stobart's previous efforts that they have every chance of filling that aircraft to GLA. As for Stornoway, I would suggest that no airline is better placed to make a success of the route.

ABZ is opportunistic with Eastern's ABZ - LCY now stopping en-route at NCL. Non-stop to SEN is a viable alternative.

To me this is great news. With EZY, FR and presumably more from Flybe/Virgin based at the airport it really needed a significant boost from an airline based elsewhere.

I think Loganair have every chance of success.

I assume with that sort of schedule straightforward connections are available to Barra, Benbecular etc via GLA and Shetlands/Orkneys via ABZ. That would put the service at quite an advantage.

I've been told it's Tangney Tours. They generally use Titan aircraft from STN but I wonder if the lease of three A321s to Jet2 this summer, plus their B737s being converted to freighters, has reduced their availability for Lourdes flights in S19 and Jota are taking on that work. Has it definitely been confirmed though that the flights will be from SEN or could they still be from STN I wonder.

Back in my BMA days we did many Tarbes charters (for Lourdes pilgrims) for Cathedral Tours - mainly flying from Liverpool (Catholic) I think they have ceased trading now.

DC-9 or a Viscount with shed loads of WCHR's - 30 or 40 with many lift-on's all wanting to visit the Grotto at The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes - St Bernadette
She received several visions from the Virgin Mary starting in 1858.
This year 2019 celebrates the 175th anniversary of the birth of Bernadette Soubirous and the 140th anniversary of her death.

All rather lovely to load the aircraft with the pax all happy to be going on their pilgrimage - My disabled nephew and his son has been a few times.
