AN AIRLINE has cut one of its flights and introduced a winter schedule two months early.
Scots have been able to fly twice a day between Benbecula and Glasgow over the summer, but now the holiday schedule ends on 3 September.
From then on, passengers can only travel to and from the island once a day.
This change was originally scheduled to take effect from October, but was brought forward.
However, Scottish airline bosses have said the new return flight will be on a larger plane with more space for travelers than the summer schedule.
That said a spokesman for Loganair press and journal: “This change is intended to provide more security given the delays in the delivery of our new aircraft.
“We understand that this will cause inconvenience to some customers and would prefer not to take this step. However, it is important that we take steps to enable travelers to plan accordingly.”
Now the single daily flight per route takes place at noon.
This means islanders can no longer fly into Glasgow on Friday evening and return home early on Monday morning.
The Loganair spokesman added: “Affected customers can change their booking free of charge.”
“We thank our customers for their patience and understanding.”
The route between Benbecula and Glasgow is one of the only two routes in Scotland to be affected by the schedule change.
Islanders can still travel to the mainland by ferry.
