Upgrading of Security Procedures at Benbecula Airport

We are enhancing our current security procedures with the installation of a body scanner at Benbecula Airport during the week commencing 5th February 2024. This may have the potential to cause disruption to our normal service and we would encourage passengers to allow more time to pass through security at this time. Please bear with us as we introduce this new system which is part of work to upgrade our security process for the safety of our passengers and staff.

As the so-called island between the islands of North and South Uist to which it is connected by road causeways, it is the perfect stepping stone between both.

It operates services to Stornoway, Inverness and Glasgow airports.
