SCC WELCOMES VOTE OF CONFIDENCE IN HIGHLAND ECONOMY

[ 26-06-2013 ]

Commenting on the announcement by easyJet that it is to increase its capacity on services between Inverness and London by 30%, including key early morning and evening slots that are important to business travellers, Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said:

 
“The expansion in capacity on air services between Inverness and London by easyJet is a clear vote of confidence in the economy of Inverness and the Highlands and its potential to grow.  Tribute must go to easyJet, Highlands and Islands Airports, Inverness Chamber of Commerce and the wide variety of public and private sector organisations who worked together to make this happen.
 
“easyJet are major investors already in Scotland and today’s extension of their commitment to the Highlands is extremely welcome.  It is particularly important that the new schedule will incorporate the key early morning and evening slots that are vital for travel to London and back on the same day, as well as the provision of slots to serve the Highlands’ vital tourism market.
 
“This commitment recognises the commercial attractiveness of Inverness Airport to the aviation industry, which is testament to the strong, confident and growing businesses that are operating in the Highlands and the opportunity now exists to ensure a long term sustainable link between the Highlands and London.”
