Scottish regional airline Loganair has announced a new distribution deal with travel technology giant Sabre.

Loganair ceased its franchise agreement with Flybe this month and will be relaunching as an independent carrier in early September.

The deal with Sabre means that as of mid-August, thousands of corporate and leisure customers across Europe now have easier access to fares through Sabre Corporation’s (NASDAQ: SABR) travel marketplace, the Sabre Red platform.

Transition to independent airline

Loganair also announced an expanded codeshare agreement with British Airways for flights from 1 September, a move no doubt which will enable the airline to increase its traveller base and build its reputation as an independent airline.

Commercial Director at Loganair, Kay Ryan, said: “We are committed to growing our network of regional flights and improving connections between major UK hubs.

“Corporate travel is a huge focus for us as we look to connect the country’s thriving industrial regions and provide more opportunities for people to travel from their local airports.

We teamed up with Sabre to offer more access to our content for our agency partners and make it easier for businesses and consumers alike to access our fares.”
