  Loganair - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Loganair was established on 1 February 1962 as the air taxi service of the Logan Construction Company Ltd, operating a single Piper Aztec from Edinburgh.
Loganair became the second busiest airline at Manchester, the dominant carrier at Belfast City airport, and a significant player in the development of scheduled services at Southampton.
Loganair continues to hold a British Airways franchise, recently extended for a further 5 year period (to 2008).

 Shetland Today: Shetland Times Online News Feature
Loganair only guarantees to provide overnight accommodation for passengers it deems to be "in transit": passengers who have taken a British Airways flight to Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh or Inverness and are continuing on to Shetland with a separate Loganair flight or vice-versa.
Loganair was probably more likely to pay for overnight accommodation when flights were delayed because of mechanical faults with the plane, he said, and less likely to pay up when the cause of the delay was weather-related.
Loganair chairman Scott Grier said if the new rules on compensation were found to be valid following a legal challenge in the European Court of Justice, they would disproportionately effect Loganair which is forced to cancel a greater proportion of its flights than other airlines because of poor weather.

 Scotsman.com Business - Loganair poised to end BA franchise deal
But Scott Grier, Loganair's chairman, believes time might be running out for the franchise because the arrangement may not be as mutually beneficial today as it was in 1994, when the Scottish airline's then-owner, British Midland, originally signed the deal.
The deal has been the cornerstone of Loganair's business, and ending it is a risk for the company, which is expected to report profits of more than £1m on revenues of close to £50m this year.
He said: "When Loganair took the BA franchises, they felt it would improve bookings because the airline would be attractive to passengers because of the BA franchise.
