These include world-wide connectivity via London Heathrow with British Airways and Amsterdam with KLM, Norwegian energy related connection with Wideroe and SAS, and leisure destinations via London Gatwick and Luton with easyjet plus the varied direct holiday options with TUI and Ryanair, opening Caithness and Sutherland to wide reaching connectivity.
