Ap­peal to back air­port ex­pan­sion

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

A HIGH­LANDS and is­lands MSP is urg­ing the Sec­re­tary of State for Trans­port and Sec­re­tary of State for Scot­land to back plans to ex­pand Heathrow air­port in a bid to bring more pas­sen­gers to the High­lands.

Labour MSP David Ste­wart’s let­ter to Patrick McLough­lin and David Mun­dell fol­lows the re­cent re­in­state­ment of di­rect Bri­tish Air­ways flights be­tween In­ver­ness Air­port and Heathrow.

The di­rect BA ser­vice, which stopped in 1997, could bring in at least 70,000 more vis­i­tors to the High­lands each year.
