Sumburgh Airport is the main airport serving Shetland, providing a vital link to the community and visitors alike.

Located on the southern tip of the mainland, in the parish of Dunrossness, passengers are treated to stunning views of the area as they come into land.

Sumburgh has many well-known attributes but is probably most famous for its puffin community, which all roost on Sumburgh Head, near the airport.

The airport connects with Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Kirkwall Airports. In the summer there is an additional Saturday service to Bergen, Norway, running from end of May until late August.
