Loganair Starts Manchester – Den Helder Flights (The Netherlands)

Flybe franchise carrier Loganair has commenced ticket sales for a new weekday service, operating between Manchester Airport to Den Helder (De-Kooy) Airport in the Netherlands.

The flights to Den Helder, which serves as the Netherland’s offshore support hub, will operate on weekdays from March 4 2013 via Norwich. Passengers will be able to leave Manchester at 8.55am arriving in Den Helder at 12.10pm, local time. A return service will depart Den Helder at 2.30pm, arriving into Manchester via Norwich at 4pm.

Expected to be popular with business passengers, the route will act as a transport linkage for personnel employed in the offshore oil and gas, maritime and horticultural sectors which are located in the Netherlands.

Fares to Den Helder will start from £99.99 one-way including all taxes and a free checked bag up to 20kgs in weight. Customers will also receive a generous 6kg cabin baggage allowance as well as a choice of complimentary on-board snacks and refreshments served in-flight.

The new route is an extension of the popular Manchester to Norwich service, which is flown 3 times every weekday, and once on a Sunday.

Loganair’s chief operating officer Phil Preston said: “We’re extremely happy to be once again extending our international network, launching a route which will be hugely attractive to those working in the oil and gas industries.

“The Manchester – Norwich service has already proven to be very successful and the new link with Den Helder will be an extremely useful service for passengers spread across the UK. With tickets now on sale and the first flight taking off on March 4, the new route will no doubt be warmly welcomed by the many companies working out of the Dutch coastal city, while further bolstering Loganair’s offering from Manchester.”

Ken O’Toole, chief commercial officer for MAG, said: “We continue to work alongside our airlines to support their growth ambitions from Manchester and the addition of this service not only extends the reach of Loganair into the Netherlands, but also supports our domestic network in the UK as they already serve Norwich from Manchester Airport. Loganair is a franchise carrier for Flybe’s growing regional hub base here at Manchester and the inclusion of this route will further support its development.”

Commenting on the introduction of a new daily weekday service from Norwich to the Netherlands, Oil & Gas UK’s chief executive, Malcolm Webb, said: “This is good news for East Anglia; as one of the key hubs of the UK’s oil and gas supply chain, the region has a wealth of contractor expertise. This new service provides a direct and easier route between the East of England and the Netherlands and so should be a benefit to those working in our industry in those locations.”
