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 one 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 one 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.”
