I received a press release this afternoon from the Hebridean Air Services who currently provide regular air services between Oban, Colonsay, Coll and Tiree in the Inner Hebrides. Starting the 1st of June they will offer a new return air service from Oban and Colonsay to Islay. You can find the details in the press release below. The timetable is available by clicking here
Press Release Hebridean Air Services: As a result of customer feedback, we are making some exciting alterations and additions to our Timetable. We are offering a new service, special fares and a new website online booking service, with these changes taking effect from the 1st June. Continue reading.......
We are pleased to be introducing a Tuesday and Thursday day return service from Oban and Colonsay to Islay. The aircraft will depart Oban at 0805, routing through Colonsay to Islay. This will give Colonsay residents the opportuntiy of flying to Islay to connect with the FlyBe service to Glasgow. Islay residents will also have the availability of a day return sevice to Oban departing Islay at 0930 and departing Oban for Islay at 1510. Passengers intending to use the Air Service at Islay, should use the long term car park, available free of charge, where there is located a portakabin for the use of Hebridean Air Services passengers. This is to ensure that passengers on the Glasgow services are segregated from those travelling to or from Oban and Colonsay. Passengers can still use the terminal for connections and facilities such as refreshments and car hire. We hope that this long awaited innovation gets the support of both business and leisure users and becomes a well used part of the local transport infrastructure.
We are also pleased to announce a trial of a weekend special return between Oban and Colonsay, and Oban and Coll. These flights will depart on a Friday and Sunday afternoon, and all seats will have a weekend special fare of Â£40 single.
We are offering reduced fares on all routes. Passengers will have the option of booking an Early Bird fare online, where we are offering a limited number of seats on every flight at a lower fare.
All of the new services and fares are available on our web booking service which will come into effect at the end of May at www.hebrideanair.com. We hope these changes reflect the needs of our customers, and that they will continue to give us their valuable support and feedback.
