Airport group HIAL becomes first in Scotland to sign Armed Forces Covenant
Regional airport operator HIAL has become the latest high profile organisation to sign the Armed Forces Covenant, and the first airport group in Scotland to do so.
The Armed Forces Covenant, which covers all branches of the armed forces, was introduced in 2011. More than 700 charities, public sector organisations and businesses have since signed the Corporate Covenant as a public demonstration of their support for the armed forces community.
HIAL has pledged to support the Covenant by offering greater flexibility for employees who serve as Reservists in the Armed Forces so that they can be released for training or deployment.
