Dundee Airport (DND)
Standing alongside the River Tay and close to both the Dundee Technology Park and the city's university, Dundee Airport is located just 3 km / 2 miles south-west of the city itself and within the Tayside area. The airport offers convenient access to several major centres within east and central Scotland, including Dundee city, Perth, Montrose, Forfar and Blairgowrie.
Although relatively small is size, Dundee Airport is an important regional entry point for tourists travelling to locations along the river and the surrounding towns and villages. Services to and from Dundee Airport are currently restricted to flights arriving from other destinations in the UK and limited international charter flights, with approximately 75,000 passengers utilising the airport annually. New routes to Belfast and Birmingham have recently been added by FlyWhoosh airlines.
The airport lies just off the A85 highway, which runs directly to Dundee city and connects with the A90 to Perth and the A92 to Glenrothes. There are no direct bus or rail links from Dundee Airport, although taxis are easily available from outside the terminal building and provide transport to mainline bus and rail stations, and locations around the region, such as Aberdeen, Arbroath, Dunfermline, Glenrothes and Kirkcaldy.
