Highlands and Islands Airports Limited and Prospect announce new talks in ongoing pay dispute that has affected airports in Inverness, Sumburgh, Kirkwall, Dundee, Stornoway and Benbecula
Talks in a dispute over pay for Highland air traffic controllers are set to resume at the end of this week.
In a joint statement this morning Highlands and Islands Airports Ltd (Hial) and the Prospect union say they are "hopeful" progress can be made in the discussions.
Thousands of passengers have been affected by a series of one-day stoppages and other action short of strike by air traffic controllers employed by Hial.
While Prospect has previously sought a 10 per cent pay rise for its members Hial have insisted they cannot meet that demand due to "budgetary restrictions".
