Inverness International airport
Inverness, capital of the Highlands, is one of the fastest growing business and social centres in the UK. The high quality of life and unrivalled natural environment in the region are major factors in the city’s success.
Inverness Airport services daily scheduled links within the UK and holiday charters. It also supports a strong executive charter and freight business with aircraft from elsewhere in the UK, Europe, America and Scandinavia.
Routes operated by British Airways, easyJet, Loganair, Eastern Airways and Highland Airways are offering travellers within the region better access to UK and international markets. London, Manchester and Birmingham by air are now little over an hour away.
Tourism is a key market for the region and the airport offers visitors unrivalled access to the stunning scenery and unique culture of the Highlands and Islands. Onward connections from Inverness to the Orkney and Shetland Isles in the North and the Outer Hebrides in the West open up opportunities to experience these areas of outstanding beauty.
Air freight movements in and out of the airport are also increasing and plans to develop a major freight and business park next to the airport are progressing.
As a result of its customer focused approach to business Inverness recently became the first UK airport to achieve Hospitality Assured accreditation.
Inverness Airport boasts a main runway measuring 1,900 metres, capable of handling B757 aircraft. An Instrument Landing System facilitates aircraft operations in poorer weather conditions.
A shorter cross–runway is used by light aircraft. Two aprons located on the west side of the airport accommodate scheduled and private aircraft.
