Loganair is reducing its free hold luggage allowance on basic fares but insists it is the only UK airline to maintain a free checked in bag policy. A revamped fares policy will see the Scottish carrier reduce the complimentary hold baggage allowance for passengers on its ‘Fly’ fares to 15kg.
The airline said in a statement: “Loganair remains the only UK airline to offer a free hold baggage allowance with every fare and one of only two airlines to offer a full baggage allowance for infants under the age of two even where they don’t have their own seat. Student fares, offering increased baggage allowances, will be unchanged and the provisions for customers travelling for medical treatment through NHS patient travel will also remain unchanged.”
The changes to each fare type will apply to new bookings made from now on. Kay Ryan, commercial director of Loganair said: “We’re always looking for ways to further improve our overall product offering and customers who regularly travel on FlyFlex tickets have indicated a requirement for an increased baggage allowance. Frequent flyers who opt for Fly Flex+ tickets will be reassured by the newly introduced missed flight protection option – providing peace of mind in the event of unforeseen circumstances.”
