Shetland by Plane

A fleet of 2 Britten-Norman Islander aircraft connects Shetland's most remote islands to Tingwall airport, 6 miles from Lerwick.

Shetland's inter-island air services are specified by ZetTrans and operated by AirTask Group Ltd. They operate services between Tingwall and Fair Isle, Foula, Papa Stour and Skerries. There are also seasonal flights between Sumburgh and Fair Isle.

The provision of inter-island flights is vital to ensuring the future of Shetland's most remote and fragile communities. In addition to allowing access for the island residents the flights also offer an essential service to the increasing number of tourists interested in visiting the numerous places of interest that Fair Isle, Foula, Papa Stour and Skerries have to offer.
