To ask the Scottish Government what its response is to Flybe's decision to cancel its Dundee to Amsterdam service, and when it was first made aware of this decision.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 24 January 2017
The Scottish Government is very disappointed by Flybe’s decision to withdraw the Dundee-Amsterdam air service. Highlands and Islands Airports Ltd has worked closely with Flybe to seek to resolve the Airline’s operational issues and will continue to work with Flybe and other interested parties in the interests of returning this successful service to Dundee. The Scottish Government was made aware of Flybe’s intention to withdraw the service on 22 December 2016.
