British Airways and Loganair expand codeshare agreement

British Airways has announced that it has expanded its codeshare agreement with Loganair.

The expansion to 18 new routes will now give British Airways’ passengers access to 38 of Loganair’s UK routes, meaning that travellers can book onward connections from destinations across the airline’s route network, or point to point travel in the United Kingdom more easily through British Airways’ website. Travellers who book onto these selected routes operated by Loganair through ba.com can also earn Avios and Tier points as part of British Airways’ Executive Club programme.

The 18 new routes on which British Airways will codeshare with Loganair on the latter’s routes are:

  • Aberdeen to Belfast City, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, and Southampton
  • City of Derry to London and Liverpool
  • Cornwall Airport Newquay to Manchester
  • Exeter to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle
  • Isle of Man to Birmingham, Edinburgh and Manchester
  • Inverness to Birmingham
  • Norwich to Aberdeen and Edinburgh
  • Teesside to Southampton

British Airways’ customers travelling from Aberdeen or the Isle of Man to Manchester will also now be able to connect onto British Airways’ code share flights on other carriers, including oneworld partners, from the north-west hub. Destinations include New York, Barbados and Orlando, allowing travellers to book a single ticket with assured connections.

Jonathan Hinkles, Chief Executive Officer, Loganair, said:

We’re delighted to mark Loganair’s 60th anniversary with the expansion of our partnership with British Airways. Today’s addition of no fewer than 18 routes is great news for connectivity to and from the UK regions, and we’re confident that the ability to enjoy Executive Club benefits and a new range of seamless flight connections when flying on selected Loganair routes will bring welcome new choice for British Airways’ customers when flying in the UK regions. The development cements what we believe to be the longest-running relationship between two UK airlines, and it’s a partnership which will continue to deliver for customers throughout the UK.

Neil Chernoff, Director of Network and Alliances, British Airways, said:

It is great news to be expanding our longstanding codeshare agreement with Loganair. This will create better connectivity and offer more choice for our customers between UK regions and destinations all over the world thanks to our expansive global route network and Loganair’s extensive regional services.

The news of a codeshare expansion between the two carriers comes as Loganair celebrates its 60th birthday, making it the oldest UK airline still operating under its original name.

Meanwhile, British Airways and American Airlines recently unveiled new plans for New York JFK’s Terminal 8.
