Dundee-London air route funding secured until 2019

Published on : Wednesday, March 15, 2017

planeThe UK government has announced more than £1.8 million to secure a vital air link between Dundee City Airport and London Stansted for another 2 years.

 

The public service obligation (PSO), agreed between the UK government, Transport Scotland and Dundee City Council, guarantees almost £3.7 million to keep the route open over the 2017/18 and 2018/19 financial years.

 

The UK government will contribute 50% of the total funds, with the Scottish government putting in £1.4 million and Dundee City Council funding a further £400,000.

 

Loganair will continue to operate the route from 26 March 2017, with the service comprising 2 return flights each weekday and 1 return flight on Sundays.

 

The Dundee-London link, which launched as the first government PSO in 2014, plays an important role in promoting Dundee as a business and tourist destination, offering additional travel options to railway and road. Flight times between the 2 airports currently stand at around an hour and a half.

 

Last month, the UK government gave its first ever backing for a PSO in Northern Ireland.
