Loganair has announced it will restore an air link between Aberdeen and Oslo this summer.

The airline said the route, previously operated by a different airline, will create more than 20 jobs. 

Up to six weekly flights will fly from the north-east airport from June 13, running from Sunday to Friday. 

Training for the new roles is under way, with many new recruits formerly employed by Flybe in Aberdeen before the airline’s collapse almost two years ago. 

Loganair’s chief executive Jonathan Hinkles said: “We’re delighted to be adding Oslo flights at Loganair’s Aberdeen hub, restoring connectivity to the Norwegian capital for both business and leisure travellers.  

“It’s an important and long-standing route at Aberdeen, and one which we’re pleased to step into following the cutbacks which other airlines have understandably made during the pandemic.

“Together with the new Oslo route, Loganair’s expansion at Aberdeen will see us offering our largest-ever schedule in summer 2022.  

“It has been a pleasure and a privilege to welcome many new employees to our airline in recent weeks as we create new jobs to support this growth.  

“It has been a tough two years for the whole industry and it is clear that they’re hugely excited to be returning to the skies with Loganair.”

Mark Beveridge, operations director at Aberdeen International Airport, said: “On the back of some great announcements from Loganair with their 60th year celebrations, we warmly welcome this new service to Oslo.

“Loganair is a valued airline partner at our airport and we look forward to this route starting later in the year.”
