Oy Vey - bit of a tight squeeze into DND.

So the PSO is due to start next week but still no word on who won the tender.

Flights beyond next week are still bookable to STN on the Loganair website, but surely we must have an announcement soon...!

"Flights between Dundee and London are set to shift to a new destination in the capital.

The Courier understands planes will take off and land at London City Airport, rather than London Stansted at present.

Services between the cities will continue to be operated by Loganair"

"Loganair said it would be increasing the size of plane on the route from a 33-seater to a 48-seater"

Good news. The Dundee/Angus/Perthshire/North Fife catchment is capable of sustaining more than just a London flight, in my opinion, time will tell I suppose. The old "use it or lose it".

Confirmed now by Loganair that London will move to LCY and they will start flights to BHD.

BHD could be a shrewd move by Loganair, as the press release states, there a lot of Northern Irish students studying in Dundee.

I really think this is great news for Dundee. LCY is a far better airport for business traffic and there are a huge number of NI students which hopefully should use the service to Belfast. Hopefully we'll see a reinstatement of the Amsterdam or Manchester service in the long term, but I don't think Loganair would be the right carrier unless there were connections - particularly for long haul.

They interline with KLM so there shouldn't be a problem with them operating AMS in terms of connections, the real problem for them would be acquiring slots.

Dundee - London City route


Loganair’s ATR 42-500 arriving from London City this evening.
Good to see the route getting underway again.

DND has had BHD before with flybe, but the prices were always pretty high way out of the reach of most students who made us of lower cost flights from GLA/EDI/PIK to Ireland. Hopefully Loganair can keep the costs low enough to make the route viable, same with LCY, although if that's business oriented it shouldn't be much of an issue.

I'd like to see AMS back again, Flybe were an absolute disgrace the way they dropped the route after so much faffing about with it. Loganair should have a serious look at the route as it was popular the last time and as things calm down with covid restrictions, they could make a success of it, especially if they can use it as a KLM feeder.
