I’d imagine the links with Lufthansa and star alliance through BMI will be used as much as possible. As has been said the fares will be key but BRS has managed to sustain BMI well so hopefully the same can be done for Loganair.

Different AOCs and different companies. They won't be piggybacking on bmi's LH relationship.

Just because theyre on different AOCs does not mean BMIs links with LH cannot be taken advantage of.

Scottish operator Loganair has reported a pre-tax loss of 8.93m for the year to March 2018.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotla...iness-44633581

Seems like quite a risky maneuver to dip their toes into the European market using 145's given these losses. Probably also explains the delay in the new ATR aircraft.

Was there not always inevitably going to be a loss in the first year they went solo?

Yes, most of the losses were predicted
And has virtually nothing to do with consideration of ATR / fleet replacement.

Given the nature of the battle with Eastern that they got into I'm surprised it's not worse! (Suspect it is for Eastern...)

Surely that finical hit must delay the fleet renewal plans, the first ATR was due to arrive in winter 17/18.

It is all explained in the article:
Without the non-recurring items associated with the airline's former partner, Loganair would have recorded an underlying pre-tax profit of 2.95m. After the break-up with Flybe, Loganair spent 2.98m re-establishing its own brand and back-office functions. Delays in code-sharing agreements with new business partners cost a further 2.09m. But the biggest loss has been attributed to a price war with Flybe, estimated by Loganair to have cost it 6.8m
If the figures are correct, nothing to worry about as either one-off costs for establishing a stand-alone operation that were to be expected and costs associated with the price war with Eastern which is now over

I wouldn't be surprised if the ERJs at Inverness turned out cheaper to run than the S2000s!

Jonathan Hinkles confirms on BBC Radio Shetland that the ATR42 will likely be the replacement for the SAABs (I think the presenter said 340s...) and could be seen as early as next year. He ruled out using 145s on the Sumburgh route saying they are unsuitable but did say they will be used on Stornoway.

Does anyone know whether in theory the new agreements with KLM and Thomas Cook Airlines are eligble for ADS and if you depart from an airport that is exempt from APD the whole journey should not have APD (like the BA codeshare ones)? Looking at the websites there is no ADS option and it adds on all the APD as if they are just two standalone flights.

There dosn't seem to be any concrete information on the Loganair ADS page, but they have a way of contacting them for more info [email protected] or 0800 032 2890. They might know?

This is from the ADS website... not entirely clear!

5. Does it apply to onward connections?

    • Only journeys to and from Inverness, Aberdeen, Bergen, Manchester, Glasgow and Edinburgh are included.

Just thinking about this. Why would the APD not apply for onward connections?

I understand APD not applying for the initial 'lifeline' links between the highlands and islands and the mainland, but why should people not pay it on the onward legs?

I agress with last poster. I can see an incentive re Highlands and Islands but not say Glasgow Manchester simply because they originated in eg Islay

As waiving APD benefits all, whereas the ADS only applies to locals., maybe it is to incentivise travel TO those places? Or is the APD only waived for flights FROM those destinations?

Reading his post I assumed that if he books, say, Islay to Glasgow, he gets the discount. But if he books Islay to AMS, or to his TCX holiday he can't find a way to still get his discount on the first segment, which he should be able to do.

Correct Islay - Heathrow on BA.com has a with and without ADS price that discounts the Islay to Glasgow leg (not Glasgow to Heathrow). Doesn't seem to be so for TCX or KLM.

On APD - my understanding for example is that you can do for example Inverness-Heathrow-New York for example and pay less APD than say Glasgow-Heathrow-New York and that people will actually position to Inverness to take advantage of this (saves a few hundred pounds if flying club world). When you try and do the equivalent on say KLM via Glasgow I thought the originating airport would determine the APD for the whole journey but seems not.
