Flights between Dundee and London are to be extended throughout 2020, aviation minister Paul Maynard announced last week, with Loganair operating 11 services a week between the Scottish airport and Stansted.
Maynard said the announcement meant people in Dundee and surrounding areas would be able to continue to enjoy the benefits of direct flights to London while the decision would also support local jobs and businesses across the country.
The route is supported by the Public Service Obligation (PSO) scheme, which is backed by government funding and is designed to protect routes that connect the UK, encourage economic growth and boost travel.
Loganair was chosen by Dundee County Council to operate the service and has also committed to increasing the size of the aircraft used from a 33-seater to a 48-seater in May.
Maynard added: “The decision supports jobs, allows businesses to access global markets and connects friends and family. The renewal of funding demonstrates this government’s commitment to strengthen the vital ties between Scotland and the rest of the UK and our ambition for a thriving economy across the whole of the UK.”
