I would blame Flybe for not doing research into the airport before committing to the route. That aside, other aircraft of similar size to the dash 8 have operated in and out of Dundee for years and continue to do so, only Flybe seemed to have an issue with light aircraft. I do lay the Blame at their feet to be honest.

Am surprised no one has mentioned BHX. Route performed well when flown by Loganair for Flybe. Think it would still work given the reduction in frequency and seats on BHX-EDI and ABZ after the Flybe collapse. Maybe Loganair don't want to dilute their ABZ route in this Covid world, demand was very different when BE flew all three but in long term BHX-DND could work very well.

Loganair launches its Dundee - Belfast City route today (18 September 2020). Initially the route will operate 2x weekly with flights on Fridays and Sundays. In Summer 2021, the route will increase to 4x weekly flights with Monday and Thursday rotations added.

Are the two Dornier Do328's still stored here and if so are they still for sale ?

If they are still here, seems like they have been here for a long time now.

They are indeed still at DND and remain for sale as far as I'm aware.

Is the DND BHD route not under some sort of PSO or support scheme as well?

These tenders seem never ending. If its not broke just let it run and save expense snd paperwork. SG are quick enough to withdraw contracts when they don't like things #Scotrail #Sleeper

It isn't Scottish Government, it's Dundee City Council

Tendering isn't optional, it's a legal requirement.

yes - its set out in legistlation - over £ x value you have to get (or try and get) three tenders - it's to stop Councillor Jones's mate have a life-long income

Surely there can't be many operators left in the market to run the Dundee to London flights with the size of aircraft required.
Seems to be the same operator doing this PSO every time its newly awarded.

I wonder if that's the real reason that BHD is being canned.

DND-BHD getting hit with cheap fares and a choice of what colour aeroplane you want to fly on from EDI to BFS and BHD. Itís down to two days a week so might as well improve the services starting at LHR and running north via DND which seem to be doing quite well.

Where's the Loganair thread? Anyway they've announced that the summer through flights to Shetland from London via Dundee will operate 3 times a week next summer, up from 2.
