HIAL has a two-stage internal complaints handling process and, wherever possible, we will aim to quickly resolve straightforward complaints at the point of receipt.
Where a complaint cannot be resolved at the point of service delivery, we will aim to resolve it where possible, and provide a response within five working days of the complaint being received.
If it is not possible to provide a frontline response or the complainant remains dissatisfied following the frontline response, a Stage 2 investigation may be undertaken.
Where a complaint is complex or serious in nature, a Stage 2 investigation may be undertaken immediately.
Stage 2 investigation aims to establish all the facts relevant to the points made in the complaint and to give the complainant a full and objective response following investigation.
Following the full investigation, a full response will be provided to the complainant confirming if the complaint has been upheld, partially upheld, or not upheld, as soon as possible and within 20 working days of the complaint being received.
HIAL’s complaints process includes an independent external review stage. Should the complainant remain dissatisfied following completion of a Stage 2 investigation, they can request Transport Scotland to conduct an independent external review of their complaint.
Transport Scotland will review the handling of the complaint and will consider whether the process undertaken was in line with HIAL’s policy and procedures. Transport Scotland has published its Complaints Review Process.
Complaints against third parties
HIAL’s complaints procedure does not apply to contractors of HIAL, or other third parties operating at our airports, for example airlines or concessionaires. Complaints received about third parties should be dealt with under their own policy and process.
Where we receive a complaint about a third party, we will offer the option of forwarding such complaints to the appropriate company.
