From October this Scottish airline will start flying under the Flybe brand to the Orkney, Shetland and Western Isles after the termination of its franchise agreement with British Airways. For the past 13 years the company has provided commuter services from Glasgow and Edinburgh to Scotland’s remote islands under BA’s colours. However, passengers will still be able to book seamless through-services with BA. In addition to 13 Saab 340 aeroplanes, the company owns two Twin Otter aircraft that it uses to make beach landings on the island of Barra. Profits have grown 53% a year, from £1m in 2004 to £3.6m in 2007.
