Today saw a first in my nearly 16 years at Kirkwall Airport, namely Loganair flying their routes in their own right and Flybe continuing their Aberdeen routes with flights operated by Eastern.
The concourse has had a minor change as has the FIDS (Flight Information Display System) screens
There has been a lot of work leading up to today and it seemed to work very well. The first passengers arrived very early, however, all the staff were in early in their new uniforms and I have to say that Loganair, has nailed it.
Correen and Lauren were stunning on check in and the ground handling uniforms are very smart. The new livery on the Loganair Aircraft, in my opinion, is one of the nicest I have seen.
I already like the Flybe livery and I have the luxury of being unbiased, not working for an airline.
All flights departed fairly close to time and were pretty much to capacity.
I have just discovered that G-EVIE is in Kirkwall so a few more pictures tomorrow. If you want more information, please click on this link
In the meantime, here are some of the photographs I took to share with you.
