Leader of the Comhairle Angus Campbell has said MP Angus MacNeil and MSP Alasdair Allan are “completely incorrect” and has rejected the idea that Loganair is stopping Stornoway flights due to the Comhairle budget decision.

Mr Campbell commented: “The Comhairle completely rejects the idea that Loganair is stopping the Edinburgh/Stornoway flights on a Friday morning because of the Comhairle’s decision on air services.

“Loganair themselves have confirmed that the reason is ‘consistent low volumes’. It is a clearly a commercial decision and on this occasion, unfortunately, the MP and MSP are completely incorrect.”
