News /New flights to Stornoway.

A NEW flight linking Manchester and the Outer Hebrides is being launched.

Loganair has announced a new timetable for services between Stornoway in the Western Isles and Manchester Airport.

It will see the airline increase its offering this summer to two non-stop services per week.

It comes after the annoucement of the first ever non-stop services linking Stornoway with Manchester last December.

In addition to the Saturday service announced from June 23 through to September 1, a Wednesday flight will now operate from 27 June to 29 August.

The flight will leave Stornoway at 11.25am, arriving Manchester at 12.55pm.

The return flight will leave Manchester at 1.40pm, arriving Stornoway at 3.10pm.

Loganair managing director Jonathan Hinkles said: "This is fantastic news for the tourism industry on Lewis and the Western Isles in general.

"It also allows greater flexibility of business and leisure trips from Lewis to the North West of England.

"A combination of the Wednesday and Saturday flights will provide options for three, four, seven, 10, 11 and 14-night stays at both destinations, increasing flexibility whether for those using the new non-stop links to access the wide variety of onward flights for both leisure or business trips from Manchester Airport, and for those from England's North West using the new non-stop services to reach the beautiful Western Isles for long or short holiday breaks."
