Loganair has announced that it will launch flights between Edinburgh, Scotland and the City of Derry in the United Kingdom in May 2022.
Starting 17th May 2022, Loganair will operate flights between Edinburgh Airport and City of Derry Airport. Initially, the flights will operate 3-times-a-week on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays increasing to 5-weekly with additional flights on Saturdays from 25th June 2022 and on Thursdays on 30th June 2022.
These flights will be operated by a 49-seater Embraer E145 jet, with fares starting from £53.99 each way.
Kay Ryan, Chief Commercial Officer, Loganair, said:
Keeping people connected is a key driver for us and launching this route further strengthens our network across the UK while developing our partnerships with each airport. Offering greater choice, we now operate services from City of Derry to Edinburgh, Glasgow, London Stansted and Liverpool, with further onward connections to the Highlands and Islands, benefiting business and leisure travellers alike.

Ryanair has operated nonstop flights between Edinburgh and Derry in the past. The low cost carrier pulled all of its UK domestic routes in late 2020 as a result of what it said were post-Brexit regulatory changes. This decision was reversed earlier this month when Ryanair announced new flights between Derry and Manchester starting December 2021 – a route which itself has previously been operated by Loganair.
