Two New Aircraft for Tiree

It has just been announced that the contract to supply two new planes for the air service linking Tiree and Glasgow has been awarded to the Canadian Company Viking Air Limited. The two Twin Otter DHC6-400 aircraft are expected to be delivered next May (2015) and should be operating on the route not long afterwards.

The specifications for the aircraft include the important ability to land on the Barra’s beach runway, as the aircraft will also operate on the Glasgow to Barra and Campbeltown routes.
