15th April 2010
Inverness Airport will extend its opening hours to allow night flying if it wins
a major contract for mail deliveries. Post for the Highlands and Moray is currently
flown to RAF Kinloss, but the base’s contract for the service expires next year.

It would mean the airport, which now shuts at 9.30pm, staying open during the
early hours of the morning when mail flights arrive. (P & J) Click here to view full story…
