Airport Information

Welcome to Wick John O’Groats Airport

Following the strict measures announced by the Prime Minister and the First Minister on Monday 23rd March, we have been liaising closely with the Scottish Government and our aviation partners to ensure that HIAL airports can continue their unique role in providing lifeline services for our communities.

HIAL will continue to do all it can to protect the health and wellbeing of its staff, limit the spread of the infection and have the necessary resilience in place to maintain our ability to service essential and emergency flights.

Working with Transport Scotland and Loganair, HIAL have agreed to service a skeleton schedule that will ensure its airports can continue to provide lifeline, emergency and essential services.   This will ensure that vital flights, including NHS passenger transfer, the Royal Mail, oil and gas, and any required emergency flights can be accommodated.

Therefore, from Saturday 4th April 2020 the opening hours at Wick John O’Groats Airport to accommodate the skeleton schedule will be:

Opening Hours

Mon - Fri08:00 - 10:00
11:30 - 14:30
Sat Closed
Sun09:00 - 11:00
11:30 - 13:30

We also have contingency arrangements in place to accommodate emergency flights outwith these times.

We do not know how long these essential measures will remain in place but will update the website with any further changes to opening times.
