Family checks-in as milestone customers at Aberdeen Airport


LOGANAIR, the UK’s largest regional airline and lead operator at Aberdeen Airport celebrated carrying 1.5million customers at the airport this week by surprising a local family with free flights.

Aberdeen resident Rhys Jones was with his wife Zoe, four-year-old son Owen and one-year-old daughter Nia when he was welcomed at the check-in desk with a gift from Loganair. Rhys and Zoe are both accountants and were travelling on Loganair’s flight to Manchester to visit family with their young children.
