Loganair returns Islander to Orkney service

Loganair’s BN2 islander has resumed services to Orkney.

Named “Magnus Erlendsson, Earl of Orkney” after St Magnus, the aircraft introduces a new tartan-inspired design that will be rolled out across the airline’s fleet of light aircraft, ranging from the airline’s 72-seat ATR72-600 to this eight-seat islander.

The Britten-Norman Islander is based at Kirkwall and it is the heart and soul of Loganair’s Orkney inter-island service, transporting customers to North Ronaldsay, Papa Westray, Westray, Eday, Sanday and Stronsay. This includes the world’s shortest flight, between Westray and Papa Westray, with a flight time of just 90 seconds.

Loganair Chief Executive, Jonathan Hinkles, said: “The BN2 islander is often referred to as the Land Rover of the skies, and I don’t think anything could be more apt. It’s a robust, dependable, and versatile aircraft that is at ease travelling the island air. No matter the coat of paint, the islander will always be there for our island communities.”
