HIAL Announcement

Responding to HIAL’s decision to reduce operations at their airports, Highlands and Islands MSP Jamie Halcro Johnston said:

“It is important that all efforts are taken to restrict the spread of Covid-19.

“HIAL’s decision is the right one to protect their staff, as well as to reduce the risk of infection to those who will still be working to keep local airports operating or whose jobs mean they will still access the airports in support of essential services.

“The air links to the islands are lifeline routes for our communities and it’s important that they remain so for essential travel and supplies only”.
