Passenger numbers at Dundee airport have gone down, new figures have revealed.
Statistics for last month show a drop of more than 700 passengers compared with April last year. That's a drop of almost 15%.
In March, the number of people taking flights was down by 17% on last year.
Operators Higlands and Islands Airports (HIAL) have put the fall in passenger traffic down to a reduction in capacity on the London City route.
Dundee is now the poorest performer of the company's 11 airports.
A spokesman for HIAL said: “We're in discussion with key stakeholders, including Loganair, Cityjet, London City Airport and VisitScotland to develop inbound and outbound leisure and business travel at Dundee.”
He added that the airport manager Derrick Laing is attending the All Energy renewables event in Aberdeen next week with Dundee City Council to identify the potential travel and aviation needs of the renewable energy sector.
