Na h-Eileanan an Iar SNP MSP Alasdair Allan has welcomed the reintroduction of flights between Stornoway and Inverness. 

Flights to Inverness will be added to Loganair’s emergency schedule from Monday 15 June. The route had been suspended due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Since 30 March, the Scottish Government has contracted Loganair to operate daily services between the islands and the mainland to maintain essential connectivity.

Alasdair Allan MSP commented:

“This is very welcome news, especially for cancer patients in Lewis and Harris who have been making long and arduous journeys by road and sea to Inverness and back while the plane service has been suspended.

“I have been raising this issue with the Scottish Government in recent weeks, as I know this has been extraordinarily difficult for many patients and their families.

“There is still a long way to go before we return to anything like a normal air service in the islands, but this is an important and careful step.”
