Rise in Scottish regional airport passenger numbers

Passenger numbers across Scotland's 11 regional airports increased by more than 10% in November.

Highlands and Islands Airports Limited said the rise to 101,701 passengers was largely the result of significant activity in the oil and gas industry.

Sumburgh in Shetland had 50% more passengers last month than it did in November 2011.

Hial also runs Barra, Benbecula, Campbeltown, Dundee, Inverness, Islay, Kirkwall, Stornoway, Tiree and Wick.
