ScotAirways Cheap Flights & Promo Fares

Known as 'Suckling Airways' to some, ScotAirways was an airline based on Cambridge Airport in Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom. It was, however, more focused on aircraft, crew, maintenance, and insurance (ACMI) work, with air charters for business and sporting organizations. Regular scheduled services were not its forte, which might have contributed to its eventual integration into its parent company Loganair around early 2013.

Established in 1984 with operations begun in 1986 as Suckling Aviation, the airline initially handled charter services in Ipswich. Scheduled services began in 1986, before eventually moving to RAF Wattisham and then permanently to Cambridge Airport for better facilities. This continued for some time, as ScotAirways flew passengers between Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Inverness, Paris, Southampton, and Amsterdam.

The year 2001, however, posed challenges to ScotAirways which were one of the far-reaching effects of the 9/11 attacks in the United States. The crisis in the aviation industry required cutbacks for ScotAirways, suspending services from Inverness, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Paris, Norwich, and Cambridge. The airline bounced back in 2004, when frequencies on the remaining routes increased and Scotairways recorded its first profit. It also served as a partner airline along the way before Scotairways stopped operating its own scheduled airways and focused instead on ACMI lease work in 2007.

This became the start of the end for ScotAirways, as Glasgow-based airline Loganair bought it. The company continued to trade as a separate airline until April 2013, when it became fully integrated with Loganair. Scotairways also closed its London City base at the end of October 2013.

Due to Scotairways closing down in 2013, services are discontinued.
