Alert me about debates like this
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation whether it is proposed to operate a direct air service between Dyce and Scandinavian countries.
While there is little prospect of such a service starting in the near future, it has always been part of British European Airways Corporation's general plan to operate one when their resources and the facilities at Dyce are adequate.
What Scandinavian services are available in the North of Scotland?
At the moment, through British corporations, none. The first service will be from Turnhouse to Scandinavia, and the connection from it will be from Dyce to Turnhouse.
Is it not a fact that the total amount of traffic between the North of Scotland and Scandinavia would not justify one aeroplane per week?
The amount of traffic originating in Scotland is very small indeed at the moment, but the Scottish statements are that lack of a service prevents traffic arising.
