Seaplane service given go ahead
Aviation company Loch Lomond Seaplanes has been given the go-ahead form the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to begin regular flights from Glasgow Airport to some of the remotest areas in Scotland, the Herald newspaper reports. The approval was given after more than 2 years of talks with Glasgow City Council, the CAA and the Clydeport Authority.
After a 60 year gap, flights will run from next March taking passengers from the Clyde to destinations including Campbeltown and Portree on Skye for between £110 and £185 return. The 5 and 8 seater planes have the benefit of being able to take off on water and land on a runway and vice versa.
