Loganair adopts Scottish tartan colors after split with Flybe

Scottish regional carrier Loganair has dissolved its franchise partnership with Flybe and plans to revamp its colors based on traditional Scottish tartan, the company said.

The airline said it will emerge from the pact at the beginning of September 2017, marking the first time it has operated in its own right for 24 years, having flown for British Airways from 1993 and subsequently for Flybe from 2008.

Loganair uses a turboprop fleet mainly comprised of Saab 340s and Saab 2000s. The airline will have a network of 46 routes including links to London, Dublin, Manchester and the Bergen, Norway.
