Amsterdam link suspended

Flybe grounds flights out of Dundee

Flybe contributedFlybe has suspended Dundee’s flights to Amsterdam, its only international flight.

Passengers were already being taken by bus to Edinburgh.

Now the company has blamed the volume of light aircraft activity at Dundee and a lack of suitable radar coverage for its decision to ground the service.

The company has said it remains “committed to exploring opportunities” with Dundee airport’s operators.

A spokesman said: “The airline sincerely apologises for any inconvenience caused by this decision.

“The route proved very popular when it started in May and provided Dundee with its only international air link.

“However, due to the topography coupled with high levels of light aircraft activity in the surrounding area, it has become clear that enhanced radar coverage is required to accommodate the operation of our large passenger aircraft.”

The service will be suspended from 12 January.

It comes just days after Flybe announced new flights between Aberdeen, Edinburgh and London Heathrow.
