5th July 1966

Scheduled services start at Dundee Airport

Dundee Airport’s grass runway hosted its first scheduled flight on 5 July 1966, when a plane set off for Glasgow. The airport wasn’t immediately successful, and it was closed for several years from the late 1960s. The following decade, upon its reopening, the runway was extended and re-laid using Tarmac.
