A GLASGOW-based airline has scrapped 300 flights amid rising fuel prices.

Loganair, the country's largest regional airline which is based at Glasgow Airport, announced that they are suspending flights between November 2022 and March 2023.

The move affects Newquay Airport, and services to Manchester, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Newcastle will be completely suspended.

It has also been confirmed that Loganair's planned summer 2023 routes linking Newquay with Teesside and Inverness will not return.

A spokesperson said: “It’s with a heavy heart that we’ve taken the decision to withdraw our entire winter Newquay programme and to curtail our Summer 2023 plans too.

"Despite all of the challenges that the pandemic has delivered, we’ve worked incredibly hard over the last two years to build up our presence at Cornwall Airport Newquay.

"We’re most disappointed that short-sighted and short-term decisions by the airport’s management to incentivise unsustainable operations by other airlines leave no prospect of winter flights remaining viable, particularly against a backdrop of high fuel prices and rising inflation.

"In the meantime, we’ll be directing our efforts towards other UK regional airports such as Southampton, Exeter and Cardiff, where airport managements recognise and appreciate the enormous value that year-round, sustainable regional air services can bring to their communities and local economies.”

Loganair has offered all customers with bookings on the affected routes either a change of travel date or options for a refund.

Summer 2023 flights are now on sale as normal.

Glasgow Airport has been contacted for comment.
