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.
BHD was still operated by Loganair wasnít it just under the Flybe codeshare. AMS was scrapped for safety reasons to my knowledge - too many light aircraft flying around in what I believe was uncontrolled airspace and the Q400 was fairly big for DND. Not entirely Flybeís fault and I donít know how honest they would have been allowed to be in the circumstances.

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.
