Loganair has launched a podcast series called FlightLOG to give an insider’s view of the UK’s largest regional airline.
The podcast is hosted on Loganair’s website and charts the day-to-day life of the 60-year-old airline, which is now on the market.
Three 20-minute podcast episodes, presented by broadcaster John Mellis and featuring senior Loganair leadership, are now available.
CEO Jonathan Hinkles said that it was fitting to look forward to the future and back to the airline’s roots in its diamond anniversary year.
He commented: “We’ve always been a responsive and innovative organisation, but as we grow and increase connectivity across the UK, we want to share our journey with our customers and showcase the ambitious steps we are taking to be a truly global airline but with the same personal touch that people have come to expect.”
The first podcast episode features the CEO discussing the airline’s industry-leading sustainability journey. In 2021, Loganair committed to becoming net zero by 2040, a decade ahead of the UK government’s target. To meet its target, the airline is taking a series of steps, including carbon offsetting, updating with fuel-efficient regional aircraft, supporting and investing in community-led renewables schemes, and helping to develop future flight technologies.
The second podcast features Luke Lovegrove, Loganair’s Chief Operating Officer. He discusses Loganair’s role in providing regional air services, a key part of the UK’s transport infrastructure. As well as talking about the airline’s diverse customer base and charter and contract operations, Lovegrove discusses the new route and partnerships helping remote communities connect globally.
The third podcast episode hears from Loganair’s Head of Human Resources, Lyndsay Kennedy, on the airline’s family feel and focus. Loganair now has 800 on the payroll and recently introduced a new equality, diversity, and inclusion strategy to ensure all employees have a fair chance of achieving their career goals.
FlightLOG follows in the slipstream of Sky High Club, a 10-part BBC reality TV series following some of the younger members of the Loganair team.
Camera crews from production company Mentorn Scotland were given all areas access for several months to film Loganair staff at work in Shetland, the Outer Hebrides and London Heathrow. The series followed 11 Loganair employees as they balanced their personal lives with the busiest summer at work they’ve had to face so far.
