Island passengers at Inverness airport were reporting this morning that the airport had been shocked by the news of the abrupt cancellation of a charter flight from the airport tomorrow (Sunday October 2)
It was understood that passengers had not been informed of the change.
Later Highlands and Islands Airports Ltd (HIAL) confirmed the cancellation of JetsGo Holidays flight AEA412, due to depart from Inverness Airport to Palma, Mallorca on Sunday, October 2.
The charter airline (contracted by JetsGo Holidays) will not operate the flight to Palma due to a contractual dispute.
Sunday’s inbound flight from Palma to Inverness is scheduled to operate as normal.
HIAL said: "We continue to seek clarification from JetsGo but repeated attempts to contact the company today have been unsuccessful. At this stage, we are awaiting information regarding October 9 and October 16 departures, which now appear to be in considerable doubt.
"This is a highly unusual and deeply regrettable situation that is not of HIAL’s or Inverness Airport’s making and we entirely sympathise with affected passengers.
"We will continue to seek information from JetsGo and trust that the company will contact its customers as a matter of urgency."
