Loganair starts regional jet refit

A multi-million pound refit of Loganair’s Embraer 145 regional jets aims to ‘future proof’ the fleet and help the airline meet its sustainability goals.

Work has been completed on the first of 13 aircraft, including new navigational systems to fly as efficiently as possible.

A makeover of the cabins will see seats upholstered in “low carbon” leather, New seatbelts and pockets have been added, while lighting has been upgraded.

Loganair chief executive Jonathan Hinkles said: “We have been planning the refit of our Embraer 145s for some time now and we are extremely proud to be introducing the first of them into service. 

“Importantly, they don’t just look good – they are also doing good. 

“They feature the world’s lowest carbon leather and new flight management systems that will enable us to operate as efficiently as possible, reducing our consumption of fuel. 

“They also carry sensor equipment that could improve the accuracy of weather forecasts and reduce flight emissions, expanding the work of our pioneering GreenSkies environmental programme.”
