Kirkwall Airport is a vital connection between the mainland and the Orkney Isles. It operates services to Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Inverness as well as island hops to Shetland, Fair Isle and Orkney’s North Isles.
Orkney contains some of the oldest and best-preserved Neolithic sites in Europe, and is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, earning itself the name ‘The Egypt of the North’ from archaeologists.
Generations of seafarers, settlers and visitors have been attracted to this group of more than 70 islands scattered off the northern tip of Scotland's mainland. Today's visitors come in search of wildlife, history, outdoor activities and will find the famed Orcadian welcome.
Built in 1940, the airport was originally used for the defence of the Scapa Flow naval base. In 1986 the airport passed to Highlands and Islands Airports Limited.
