Q I am booked to fly to Inverness on easyJet on 26 April, which is the same day as a planned strike by air-traffic controllers. I was booked to connect to Orkney on Loganair on the same day. In early March Loganair informed us of the risk of the strike action, closed all their flights into and out of Inverness to new bookings and offered all booked passengers free transfers to other flights.

A As you know, air-traffic controllers who belong to the Prospect union and work for Highlands and Islands Airports Ltd (HIAL) are involved in a pay dispute. They have voted overwhelmingly in favour of striking: 88 per cent in favour, with 86 per cent voting, meaning more than three-quarters in total.
