Fog limits growth at Highlands and Islands Airports Ltd

Unseasonable weather has been blamed for limiting growth in passenger numbers at regional airports.

Highlands and Islands Airports Ltd (Hial), which runs 11 sites, said numbers rose by 0.7% last month compared with June 2011.

Heavy fog caused disruption at Kirkwall on Orkney and also at Inverness and Wick airports.

Hial had previously reported strong growth in the number of passengers using its sites.

In May, passenger numbers rose by 7.8% from the same to 114,366.
