More new flights from Scotland promised
Perhaps the SNP's growing clout has something to do with it. Airlines are increasingly showing confidence in the Scottish market by launching new direct routes. Ryanair has announced it will operate new cheap flights from Scotland next winter. The will launch services from Glasgow to Berlin, operating four round trips a week. It will also start flying to Frankfurt Hahn and Santander in northern Spain year round instead of just in summer. On June 8 Etihad will start a daily, non stop service between Edinburgh and its home base, Abu Dhabi. And Lufthansa is to launch a new service between Glasgow and Munich (see earlier report).
