Fingers crossed they change their minds. It would be such a shame if this route vanishes. It's so unique.
I agree and sad to say fares to other Islands going up..no drinks service on flights ( incl Tea /coffee) sigh
It is very sad, although this particular proposal only affects services to Benbecula and Stornoway - the service to Glasgow should be unaffected.
But it affects locals who have attend hospital in Stornoway :-(..Long sea/land journey for them
This would be a great inconvenience for anyone needing to travel between Barra and the rest of the Western Isles. Unfortunately we will probably hear many more stories such as this over the coming months as spending cuts in the public sector start to bite.
It is worth stressing that the Glasgow-Barra flights are not affected by this news, but this is cold comfort for anyone needing to travel to Benbecula or Stornoway.
