Highlands and Islands Airports Limited are currently planning to centralise air traffic control services away from Shetland and put them in Inverness.
£6 million has already been spent on a project which HIAL’s own consultants said was risky and costly, while a report last year from the Prospect Union estimated that £18million will be taken away from island communities. That is not good for Shetland and should be paused.
We need to see the SNP Government listen to what island communities are saying and re-assess this project to find a better solution to modernising the Highlands and Islands air traffic network.
