Dundee Airport to study demand for flights to Amsterdam

Dundee Airport has launched a study to determine how popular flights to Amsterdam would be with local travellers.

The Scottish terminal is running an online survey inviting Dundee residents to give their view on a potential air link to Amsterdam.

Launched yesterday, it is hoped the research will give airport officials an idea of how many people would take flights to Amsterdam from Dundee.

Figures suggest that people living in the airport’s catchment area travel to Aberdeen and Edinburgh to pickup cheap flights to the Dutch city.

"The more people who take five minutes to complete the survey the stronger our business case to airlines will be," said airport manager Graeme Bell.

"A direct link to Amsterdam would be of enormous economic benefit to this area for business and leisure travel and is an important route development target for us."

New flights to Amsterdam have been launched by several airlines in recent weeks.

Latvian carrier airBaltic announced flights from Riga to Schiphol Airport which will start in October, the same month BA’s subsidiary OpenSkies it to introduce flights to New York from Amsterdam.
