Inverness Airport unveils expansion plans

Inverness Airport goes for growth with £900,000 terminal revamp

Details of a major investment at Inverness Airport – including plans for a purpose built international arrivals hall to cater for the growing number of international flights at the Highland gateway – have been unveiled today.

Regional airport operator HIAL is to invest £900,000 to expand and upgrade the terminal building to provide more seating capacity and new retail and catering facilities, as well as a standalone international arrivals hall, linked to the main terminal by a covered walkway.

It comes as British Airways and KLM prepare to launch new services to London Heathrow and Amsterdam Schiphol respectively, and easyJet expands its services to London.

Fergus Ewing MSP, Minister for Business, Energy and Tourism, attended a ground breaking ceremony to mark the start of construction work.

In a separate project, the airport’s security screening area is also being refurbished and expanded.
