Clients face price hike on Aberdeen service

BUSINESS travellers have been warned they will see prices rise on flights from Aberdeen to London following KLM UK’s decision to cut its service.

The carrier announced its Aberdeen-Stansted service will be dropped on September 12 as part of a series of cutbacks (Travel Weekly, August 16).

Seaforths Travel Aberdeen director Gary Hance said the decision means business travellers have no choice but to fly with British Airways.

He said:”It is disappointing because KLMUKis cutting its service. It means that the Aberdeen business traveller doesn’t have a choice. Idon’t want the Aberdeen business traveller to be discriminated against by having to pay a higher fare.”

EasyJet currently operates an Aberdeen-Luton service, but Hance said only a handful of business travellers use the service as it is not so convenient.

ABAspokesman said:”Fares fluctuate depending on demand, but we have no plans to put our prices up because BA is the only airline on the route.”
