Loganair to Add Dundee – Belfast Route
Scottish based Regional airline Loganair has announced that it will operate a twice weekly service between Dundee and Belfast City Airport starting on 18th September. The route will be operated using their 48 seat ATR-42 turboprop aircraft. The service will operate on Friday and Sunday’s leaving Dundee at 13.15 arriving at 14.25 with the return flights departed from George Best Belfast City Airport at 15.00 with an arrival time of 16.10 back into Dundee on the east coast of Scotland. Basic fares include 15kg hold luggage and a complimentary drink and snack onboard the 70 minute flight. Flights can now be booked through the airlines website www.loganair.co.uk
Speaking in the UK when the new route was announced, Loganair chief commercial officer Kay Ryan said “We are pleased to bring back a Dundee to Belfast service, for which we’re sure there will be strong demand as lockdown eases. Many hundreds of Northern Ireland students traditionally attend Dundee University and there are strong golf ties with famous Open Championship courses at each end of the route at St Andrews and Royal Portrush. With many businesses turning their thoughts to re-starting work after the Covid-19 pandemic, the UK’s regional air connectivity will be more important than ever. For the sake of the recovery of the UK economy, we must enable key workers across the oil & gas, construction, service and healthcare sectors to travel swiftly, comfortably and safely throughout the country.”
Loganair has provided essential services throughout the lockdown on lifeline routes to the Scottish islands during April and May. Loganair currently has a fleet of over 50 aircraft with three ATR 42 in the fleet without another one on order for delivery later this year.
