HC Deb 27 November 1946 vol 430 c1594
25. Mr. Spence

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.

Mr. Lindgren

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.

Mr. Spence

What Scandinavian services are available in the North of Scotland?

Mr. Lindgren

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.

Mr. Scollan

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?

Mr. Lindgren

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.
