TV personality Lorraine Kelly and the Beano’s Dennis the Menace join passengers on the first Loganair-operated flight between Dundee and London Stansted Airport. Flybe franchise partner Loganair got the new Dundee to London Stansted service off to a flying start today (Sunday, March 30) with the help of two well-known faces from the City of Discovery. TV star and national treasure Lorraine Kelly, who lives in Broughty Ferry, and Beano favourite Dennis the Menace, an iconic export of the city, joined Loganair’s Chief Operating Officer Phil Preston and other passengers on the inaugural flight bound for the English capital. Announced in January of this year, the new service between Dundee Airport and London Stansted will now operate twice daily on weekdays with one return journey every Sunday. The new route has been introduced as a replacement for Dundee Airport’s previous London City service and flight times have been designed to appeal to the business and leisure markets of both destinations.
