Loganair has signed an agreement with airline giant Emirates, which could save money for passengers travelling around the world from Dundee Airport.
The two companies have signed an interline agreement meaning customers can travel from Dundee via London Stansted to Emirates’ network of 155 destinations around the world on a single ticket.
It also means passengers flying from Dundee to London and onward to international destinations will save an Air Passenger Duty (APD) charge of £78 in Economy Class or £515 in Business Class – charges which must be paid when departing from Edinburgh where APD applies.
The interline agreement is live with immediate effect, meaning flights are bookable at emirates.com and via travel agents.
Kay Ryan, Loganair’s commercial director, said: “Emirates is a leader in international air travel and we’re thrilled to welcome them into our Better-Connected programme.
“The agreement means Dundee Airport is now not only connected to London Stansted for journeys to and from London, but now a local airport for global travel.”
