Update – Air Traffic Control Industrial Action

Further to yesterday’s announcement by Prospect that Air Traffic Control will strike on Thursday 23 May, we are pleased to advise that, following a local arrangement, Wick John O’Groats Airport will remain open to air traffic on 23 May 2019.

The following airports will close to air traffic for the 24 hour period on Thursday 23 May 2019:

  • Benbecula
  • Dundee
  • Inverness
  • Kirkwall
  • Stornoway
  • Sumburgh

Passengers should check our website ATC page for up-to-date information during the action period and if booked to travel on 23 May, should also contact their airline as soon as possible.

The current work to rule remains in place across the airports listed above and Wick John O’Groats and and we will continue to work closely with our airlines in a bid to minimise potential disruption wherever possible
