About Highlands and Islands Airports Limited

Highland and Islands Airports Limited (HIAL) is a private limited company wholly owned by the Scottish Ministers. We operate and manage 11 Airports across the Highlands and Islands and Dundee.  Our airports are well connected, providing links to destinations across Scotland, while also linking the communities we serve to several English Hub Airports and Amsterdam.  The opportunities for travellers are endless. 

We are committed to supporting the essential socio-economic role of aviation in Scotland by maintaining and developing our airports and the connections they provide to some of our country’s remotest communities.

As an organisation, HIAL offers a flexible approach to work where possible.  While the successful applicant will be required to attend our Head Office at Inverness Airport on a regular basis, we will consider requests from applicants to be based at any of our 11 airports or be home working. More information can be found in our ‘Flexible Working – Our Approach to Work’ policy, which is attached.

HIAL’s mission is to create social benefit and economic prosperity for the communities we serve, by building a net-zero carbon regional airport group for the future.

We are committed to:

  • delivering a world class customer service and operations
  • route development and connectivity to support economic growth
  • working with partners to meet the Scottish Government’s target to create the world’s first net-zero aviation region by 2040
  • building successful partnerships with the communities that we serve

HIAL’s Values

As an organisation we encourage a strong values-driven culture, and our values underpin everything we do and how we do it. They are:

Living and working in the Highlands and Islands

The Highlands and Islands have much to offer as a place to live and work.

As well as being an area of outstanding scenery, the Highlands and Islands have a great deal to offer in terms of culture, sport and entertainment – with something for everyone. The diverse and dramatic landscapes are ideal for outdoor sports and leisure pursuits from hill walking, climbing and cycling, to golf, skiing, fishing and sailing.

The region has a rich and vibrant mix of cultural traditions, natural heritage and contemporary entertainment. An excellent education system, clean environment, low crime rate, affordable housing, plus a strong sense of community

All of which provide an excellent quality of life.
