The service will operate up to five times weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.

The new route comes the collapse of the previous operator of the route between the two capitals in Flybe in March last year.

Donna McHugh, head of revenue and sales at Loganair, said: “We are delighted to once again be operating the Edinburgh to Cardiff route. It is vital that connectivity is maintained between these two major cities, and we know it will prove very popular with both our leisure and business travellers.”

Spencer Birns, chief executive at Cardiff Airport, said: “It’s fantastic that Loganair has re-instated such a vital route, re-connecting the Scottish and Welsh capitals.

“It is our priority to re-instate routes lost due to Covid-19 pandemic, and we are delighted that Scotland’s airline has stepped in to provide this essential service to our customers. We’d like to extend a warm Welsh welcome to Loganair and thank the airline for their support.”

Kate Sherry, aviation director at Edinburgh Airport said: “We’re excited to be reconnecting the capitals of Scotland and Wales, a route which will allow family members to reunite as well as enable people to enjoy a well-earned break in Edinburgh and Cardiff.

“It’s been an extremely tough period and we know people are looking forward to enjoying some time away from home, and this is further good news as the airport looks to provide those opportunities for our passengers.

“Loganair is a valued partner and its confidence in Edinburgh Airport is welcome now and going forward.”

The airline is using a 49-seat Embraer 145 regional jets, with prices on the 80 minute trip starting at £50.99 one way including all taxes and charges.
