ALLAN PRESSES HIAL OVER AIRPORT CAFÉ FACILITIES
Stornoway Airport catering facilities to re-open in August
MSP for Na h-Eileanan an Iar Alasdair Allan asked HIAL why it has taken so long to get any catering facilities back up and running in Stornoway airport since the previous café closed in March. It is understood that the service will now be up and running at some point in August.
Commenting, Alasdair Allan said:
“Travelling back and forth between home and Holyrood each week, I have received many comments about the lack of any catering facilities in Stornoway airport. These have been closed for over three months now.
“HIAL have told me that it has been challenging trying to attract a suitable candidate to operate the catering facility, but that they have now secured a suitable vendor. They hope to be up and running again by mid-August if not before.
“I can appreciate the difficulties involved, and welcome the progress now made, but it is disappointing that we have gone virtually a whole tourist season now in this regrettable situation.”
