Loganair chief commercial officer Kay Ryan said: “Today’s announcement of an enhanced London service and a new Belfast link will provide a very significant boost for Dundee Airport, and we’re delighted to be building on Loganair’s long-standing presence at the airport with these exciting developments.”

Councillor Alan Ross, Dundee City Council city development committee convener, said: “This move signals not only confidence in the resumption of aviation services in the country as a whole, but specifically an endorsement of Dundee as a key part of the company’s plans coming out of lockdown.

“Travellers will be able to get from the heart of the UK’s capital for business or pleasure to Dundee in a straightforward, hassle-free way and from September will be able to enjoy a similar opportunity flying from another up and coming tourist destination in Belfast.”
