A price war has broken out on some air services to the Northern and the Western Isles.
As Flybe prepares to go head to head with Loganair from the beginning of September, some flights from Stornoway to Glasgow are on sale for just £50.
The airlines have jointly operated routes across the Highlands and islands under a franchise agreement since 2008.
But last year Flybe announced that it was terminating its contract with the Scottish airline from 31 August.

skipness1E wrote:How can it be a full franchise if they're only painting two aircraft? Eastern is a full fare business airline charging astronomical money on niche routes for businessmen, not, in all honesty a great flybe fit unless fares fall dramatically. This genuinely makes little sense to me. Those J41s need high fares to keep em flying.
The use of the Saab 2000 to MAN from GLA and ABZ replaces the current loganair 2000.
