New Glasgow - Mull seaplane service
A daily direct air link from Glasgow to Mull has taken off as a second destination for Loch Lomond Seaplanes. The new summer service to Tobermory Bay reduces the travelling time to and from Glasgow to 35 minutes, compared to 5½ hours or more for the same journey by road and ferry.
The introduction of the flights using a 9 seat aircraft follows the launch of the airline's daily service between the River Clyde in Glasgow and Oban on the west coast of Scotland. Over 6000 passengers have travelled or have booked on the seaplane service since the Oban service was started last August.
Loch Lomond Seaplanes, which has been running charter flights for 4 years, has been working closely with Tobermory Harbour Association to bring about the new air link to the mainland. The airline plans to expand services with a third aircraft later this year and have up to 5 seaplanes operating to destinations such as Portree, Bute, Arran in the near future.
Director and founder David West said: ‘The introduction of a Glasgow city centre - Tobermory seaplane service will greatly improve transport links between the Western Isles and the central belt. The service, using our 9 seat Cessna 208, is modelled on our highly successful Oban route and will run through to November.'
