Loganair has a long history with Shetland. They were founded on the 1st February 1962 and started flying into Shetland in 1969 before offering their first inter-island flights in May 1970.
Loganair 70s

In 1973 they took over the air ambulance service from BEA and continued to provide the service for Shetland until 2006 when they lost the contract to Gama Aviation.

Loganair withdrew the Shetland Inter-Island service in 1975 due to the reluctance of the Shetland Islands Council to agree to an annual subsidy of £40,000. An intense reaction to the Council’s decision ensured that this was short-lived.

In 1979 Loganair banned smoking on all of its flights.

In 1985 Loganair looked at replacing its Twin Otters with Dornier 228’s.

In 1992 Loganair launched Glasgow to Sumburgh and Edinburgh To Sumburgh flights using BAe Jetstreams.

On the 19th May 1996 a Loganair Islander operating for the Scottish Ambulance Service crashed short of the runway at Tingwall Airport.

In 1999 Loganair began phasing out their Shorts 360s with Saab 340s.

On March 1st 2004, Loganair took over all of the internal Scottish routes previously run by British Airways CitiExpress, including Sumburgh.

They flew under the British Airways banner as a franchisee until October 2008 when they became a franchise airline of Flybe.

In 2011, Loganair acquired Suckling Airways (ScotAirways).

Loganair CupcakeLoganair celebrated 50 years of flying in 2012.
