S5W-22301: Rhoda Grant (Highlands and Islands)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 21 March 2019

To ask the Scottish Government how many jobs will be (a) directly and (b) indirectly lost because of the Highlands and Islands Airports Limited (HIAL) remote towers project, also broken down by the total value in salaries lost, and what the economic impact will be on each community affected.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 3 April 2019

The project is in its infancy and at this stage job losses are not anticipated as a result of HIAL’s Air Traffic Management 2030 Strategy.
