Fresson's scheduled network of air services brought immense social and economic benifits to many of these islanders, as well as a guaranteed Air Ambulance service from 1934 up to the start of World War II. Services to the outer islands of Orkney then stopped - except for charters and Air Ambulance emergencies - and were only re-started in 1967 by the Glasgow-based airline, Loganair, which has since operated there to this day(2013).
