An MSP has requested a meeting with Easyjet bosses after it axed its popular Aberdeen to Gatwick route.
Flights to London Gatwick have been cancelled from February 8.
The airline currently flies twice a day between the two locations from Sunday to Friday, with one flight operating in each direction on Sundays.
Aberdeen International Airport said it was “disappointed” in the decision.
And now, after receiving complaints from dismayed constituents, Donside MSP Mark McDonald had written to Easyjet to convey his concerns.
He said: “Connectivity to London is depended on by many in the north-east for business connections, and the loss of this route is going to have negative consequences.
“The airport are working hard to present Aberdeen as a positive destination and encourage providers to invest in Aberdeen for new routes.
“I have requested a meeting with Easyjet bosses to discuss the termination of the service, where I will urge them to reconsider their plans.
“If easyJet will not reconsider, then I hope another provider will consider taking on this route which many in the north-east depend on.”
A spokesman for easyJet said: “We concentrate our efforts on maintaining and developing routes which prove most popular with passengers.
“EasyJet will continue to operate flights from Aberdeen to London Luton.”
