Island airfields in Orkney.

Orkney Islands Council has six island airfields situated on the beautiful islands of Eday, North Ronaldsay, Papa Westray Sanday, Stronsay, and Westray. Ideally located for visitors to the Northern Isles in uncontrolled airspace with some of the most breath-taking scenery in Scotland, the airfields are situated some 14 to 28 nm (nautical miles) North of Kirkwall Airport.

Loganair operate scheduled flights from Kirkwall Airport to all six north isle airports. Please refer to the Loganair timetable, available from the 'Related Sites' section of this page, to avoid arriving or departing at the same time as the Islander, no flights are permitted to land or take off within 15 minutes of any Islander flight.
