Flights from major UK airports to Shetland...
Loganair's franchise-holder Flybe operates frequent daily flights to Sumburgh Airport, Shetland (LSI) from:
- Aberdeen (65 minutes)
- Edinburgh and Glasgow (1 hour 30 minutes)
- Inverness (1 hour 40 minutes) via Orkney (35 minutes).
You can easily reach Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness from London and other parts of the UK. Aberdeen has the additional advantage that, should there be any disruption to flights, it is often possible to transfer to the overnight ferry. If you are travelling from outside the UK and would prefer to by-pass London’s ‘bottleneck’ airports, Edinburgh and Glasgow have flights from many European cities, some North American airports and the Middle Eastern hubs of Dubai, Doha and Abu Dhabi. Aberdeen is the usual hub for air passengers bound for Shetland from Scandinavia and the Netherlands.
If you are travelling from or through London, you may wish to note that you can also book your ticket all the way to Shetland through the British Airways website, as the Flybe flights into Shetland are all code-shared with BA.
