Former Loganair COO Hinkles returns as MD

Loganair’s former chief operating officer Jonathan Hinkles is returning to the Scottish regional airline as managing director.

Hinkles has spent four years at Virgin Atlantic as vice president of operations and crewing and head of flight crew, replaces Stewart Adams, who left Loganair last month for personal reasons after three years.

Hinkles is a former commercial director and chief operating officer with Flybe franchise partner Loganair and previously worked for Zoom Airlines, Asteaeus and CityFlyer Express.

He is to join Loganair as managing director in late June.

Loganair chairman David Harrison said: “During his previous time here he became well-known and respected by all our stakeholders.

“His extensive industry experience, expanded by four years at the sharp end of the Virgin Atlantic operation, combined with his deep knowledge of the Loganair operation, means Jonathan is uniquely well-qualified to lead Loganair in the coming years.”

He added: “He joins at an important time for the company, as we continue to implement previously announced initiatives to ensure punctuality and customer service are fully returned to the levels our customers have rightly come to expect over many years.”

Hinkles said: “It’s an exciting and challenging time for the business. Loganair has a strong heritage and a loyal customer base and, as managing director, I plan to build on this going forward."
