The Highlands of Scotland have never felt so close after a new air route was confirmed today linking the Highland capital of Inverness with various North American airports. Golf fans can expect this new route to be the gateway to some of Scotland’s best golf courses such as Royal Dornoch, Castle Stuart and Nairn all within a short drive of the small terminal building.
Local newspaper the Press and Journal broke the story and explained,
‘The codeshare agreement, which takes effect immediately, allows passengers to book flights from Inverness to the US cities of New York, Boston and Orlando, as well as Toronto in Canada, with a connecting fligh in Dublin on Aer Lingus’ website.
The Inverness to Dublin leg will be operated by Flybe, while the transatlantic stage will be flown by Aer Lingus. However, as the flights are tied-in with each other, passengers’ hold luggage can be checked in at Inverness and will not need to be collected until the final destination is reached.’
For those golfers who need to try and justify a golf trip to Scotland for non golfers the Highlands of Scotland may be the easiest sell of all. Loch Ness, castles, distilleries and the outdoors on your doorstep and now at your fingertips thanks to Flybe and Aer Lingus.
