One-day action over pay
Flights face disruption as seven airports hit by strike
Sumburgh is among those affected
Seven Scottish airports, including Inverness, will be brought to a standstill next month because of an air traffic controllers strike over pay.
The 24-hour shutdown on 26 April will also affect Benbecula, Dundee, Kirkwall, Stornoway, Sumburgh and Wick.
A Hial spokesman said: “To allow our passengers to plan, we are progressing on the assumption the strike action will go ahead and the airports will close to air traffic for the 24 hour period on 26 April.
“Air traffic control officers are undertaking industrial action to support their claim for a double-digit wage increase in 2018/19 or a long-term commitment to above inflation pay awards.
