ALLAN WELCOMES LOGANAIR CONCESSIONS

 

Na h-Eileanan an Iar SNP MSP, Alasdair Allan, has welcomed news that Loganair is planning to introduce a compassionate fares discount scheme for people travelling to funerals.

 

This follows a grass roots campaign on Facebook in which fifteen thousand islanders registered their displeasure with the current fare structure.

 

Alasdair Allan commented:

 

“People who have suffered the loss of a loved one and then need to fly home to be with their family should not be the target of exorbitant air fares. I have raised this issue with Loganair on a number of occasions over the years, and will be interested to see more details of how the proposed scheme will work – particularly given the company’s previous assertions that this problem had no identifiable solution.

 

I would also like to congratulate all those involved in the campaign for the hard work they have done in harnessing people power and getting this vital concession from Loganair.

 

There are still issues with regards to pricing and forcing people into buying more expensive tickets and I will be meeting with representatives of Loganair in the near future to put these points across.”
