Regional airline Loganair plans to resume Highlands flights from Inverness earlier than expected after a pay dispute was settled with workers at the Scottish airport.

Earlier this month the carrier suspended services from Inverness to Stornoway, Benbecula, Kirkwall and Sumburgh after unions representing the Highlands and Islands Airports (HIAL) announced industrial action.

However, a new pay offer was accepted by HIAL members on Tuesday (21 March), allowing Loganair to restore affected services from 24 April – a week earlier than previously planned.

Flights from Inverness will go on sale on Thursday, 23 March, on the airline’s website and booking systems.

“We are relieved to learn of the settlement of the pay dispute between Highlands and Islands Airports and unions representing many of its employees,” a Loganair spokesperson said.

“We can all now focus on delivering a busy summer season ahead without fear of rolling disruption to island flights from strikes.

“We are happy to confirm that flights from Inverness will resume on Monday, 24 April.”
