Flights between Renfrewshire and Donegal, in Ireland, have been restored as part of Glasgow Airport's summer timetable.

Loganair's service will run three times a week on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday throughout July, August, and September.

It is hoped the flights will boost connectivity between the UK and Ireland by providing the only direct air link between the UK and Donegal.

Luke Lovegrove, chief commercial officer at Loganair, said: "It's great to see Loganair's tartan tails back at Donegal this summer and today marks the first of the new weekday flights that we added after customer feedback. Our new service is operated by the larger and quieter ATR-42 enhancing our customer experience on this route.

"The beauty of Donegal is breathtaking and if you haven’t yet climbed Errigal, I would strongly advise you to do so and take in the majesty of the surrounding landscape."

Christopher Tibbett, group head of airline relations at AGS Airports, which owns Glasgow Airport, said: "We are proud to see the return of regular services between Scotland and County Donegal courtesy of our airline partner Loganair.

"Glasgow has always enjoyed tremendous links with Ireland and the addition of a regular service to this stunning north-west county will be a very popular destination choice for our leisure passengers.

"Equally, we look forward to welcoming visitors from County Donegal to our own city and region."

Flights are available to book today.
