The new agreement will enable Prospect to represent over 150 employees including Licensed Aircraft Engineers, mechanics and staff in workshops and stores functions presently spanning nine locations across the UK and Isle of Man. It follows a recent workplace survey undertaken jointly by the airline and union in which a majority of respondents indicated their support for the new arrangement.

The airline and union have also agreed to collaborate closely on efforts to secure future funding from the Scottish Government and its relevant agencies to continue and expand Loganair’s successful programme of apprenticeships and vocational training within its Engineering and Maintenance teams.

Prospect Negotiations Officer Ian Perth said:

‘’We welcome the decision of Loganair to recognise Prospect. We’re delighted to be able to bring our experience of negotiating on behalf of engineering and maintenance staff in the sector to our Loganair members.”

“It’s clear that engagement with an employer like Loganair will need to recognise the current challenges for aviation businesses, alongside the acute cost of living crises being experienced across society. Ultimately a successful Loganair is an important outcome for all parties, and we will work tirelessly to achieve the best outcomes.”

‘’We welcome the constructive spirit in which the employer has engaged in the months leading up to formal recognition. This positive beginning to the arrangement will no doubt bare fruit in our future engagements on behalf of our members.”


Prospect has members working in aviation, road, rail and maritime transportation, as well as regulation and research.
