Industrial action by Air Traffic Controllers at Highland and Island Airports (HIAL) will mean that leading regional airliner Loganair (LM/LOG) will not be able to operate flights to some of its airports.
The strike on 29th July will affect flights to Inverness, Sumburgh, Kirkwall, Stornoway, Benbecula and Dundee.
Loganair will be adding extra flights between Kirkwall and Aberdeen on the 29th July and operate larger aircraft where possible on affected routes on the Wednesday before and Friday after the one day strike.
Jonathan Hinkles, CEO, Loganair, said: “We are hugely disappointed by this strike action by the union representing Air Traffic Controllers at HIAL airports, and can only ask for our customers’ understanding that we are unable to avoid the inconvenience that these flight cancellations will inevitably cause to travel plans, hospital appointments and island deliveries of freight and mail.”
Loganair says that customers on affected flights will be emailed with the options available to them.
