ScotRail Launch £20 Fare for Passengers Connecting with Flybe Flights Within Scotland
ScotRail has launched a new scheme which will allow passengers using Loganair’s internal Scottish air network to connect via rail to anywhere in Scotland for a flat fare of £20.
The 1 year pilot scheme offers passengers travelling to or from a flight on Flybe’s intra-Scotland network, operated by Loganair, a fixed-rate £20 (£10 child ticket) single journey on any ScotRail-operated service.
Passengers will be able to purchase the add-on ticket at any manned station booking office, or on-train upon presentation of a valid flight boarding pass and photo ID.
The pilot will run for 1 year until March 2017. ScotRail will monitor and review sales data and uptake over the period.
Cathy Craig, ScotRail commercial director said: “It offers a real benefit to customers when transport providers work together to offer seamless ticketing options – a practice we’re keen to continue as we roll out Smartcard season tickets across Scotland during our Summer of Smart.”
Loganair chairman David Harrison said: “We have operated air services throughout the country for more than half a century and appreciate the positive impact greater transport connectivity can have, particularly to our passengers from the island communities. This fixed-rate promotion allows our customers an integrated approach at a reasonable price and we are very happy to support it.”
