A discount fare for members of the armed forces and veterans has been introduced by Loganair.

The 10% reduction in the core ticket price comes ahead of Remembrance Sunday and the final year of the World War 1 centenary.

The Scottish regional airline has teamed up with Poppyscotland and The Royal British Legion to provide the Armed Forces fare.

Bookings can be made on the Defence Discount Service website; the official Ministry of Defence discount service for the armed forces used by companies across the UK including Loganair codeshare partner, British Airways.

Serving armed forces, reserve forces, spouses and partners of serving personnel, armed forces veterans, MoD civil servants, bereaved family members, war or service widows, cadet forces and NATO personnel in the UK are all eligible.

Loganair commissioned an aircraft livery to raise awareness and support Poppyscotland and The Royal British Legion.

The Saab 2000 has a logo from each organisation printed onto each side of its 3m tail-fin.

The airline’s commercial director Kay Ryan said: “The discount has been created to honour the servicemen and woman who have dedicated their lives to serving their country.

“Loganair is working in partnership with Poppyscotland and The Royal British Legion to support members of the armed forces while also showcasing some of the vital work these organisations carry out on a daily basis on behalf of the entire military community.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming subscribers to the military discount on board.”

Mark Bibbey, chief executive of Poppyscotland, said: “Members of the armed forces are often based far away from home so an initiative like this which offers a significant discount on travel must be applauded.

“This will also make Loganair’s extensive network more accessible to those who have served, and to forces families too.”
