Six Scottish airports will close for one day on 23 May 2019

Six airports will close for one day this week as a result of a strike by air traffic controllers involved in a pay dispute.

Highlands and Islands Airports Limited (Hial) said it expects the airports at Inverness, Dundee, Benbecula and Stornoway in the Outer Hebrides, Sumburgh in Shetland and Kirkwall in Orkney to be shut on Thursday.

Earlier this month, the workers’ union Prospect announced May 23 as the day for strike action as part of the ongoing air traffic controllers’ dispute it says has been going on for more than a year.
