Dundee to London becomes Flybe

The Dundee to London air service, currently to London City Airport, flown by CityJet, and due to stop on 30 March, has been saved.

Loganair is to take over and will operate a twice-daily weekday service, and once on a Sunday, to Stansted from that date.  It will operate under the Flybe franchise, an important raising of the profile for the LSE listed carrier, its first appearance at the airport.

The new Dornier 328 service is the result of weeks of negotiation between Dundee Airport operator HIAL, Dundee City Council, Transport Scotland and the airline.

Besides retaining the essential London link from Dundee, the operation is a boost for Stansted as it begins to grow again after a poor number of years under the old BAA management.

HIAL Managing Director, Inglis Lyon, said: “Stansted is a great choice of airport for Dundee, with a wider choice of airlines and three times the number of destinations on offer at London City.  Flight times have been designed with business passengers in mind and will allow those travelling for work to reach the city in good time for an early morning meeting, with easy rail access into Liverpool Street, right in the heart of London’s financial centre.”
