Have your say – Highlands and Islands Air Transport Survey

The Scottish Government has launched a survey to gather new evidence from people living and working in the Highlands and Islands to inform its work on Air Departure Tax. The survey is running for 4 weeks, from Monday 10th September at 12 noon to 8th October at 12 noon.


This survey is designed for those living and working in the Highlands and Islands, who use air transport for business, leisure or both.

The survey’s main themes are:
• How you currently use air transport to and from the Highlands and Islands
• How important air transport is to you
• What you would like to do differently or be different.

The survey is anonymous and although the region you live in is asked for, and the first part of your postcode, this is just to get an idea of the spread of survey respondents. It is not possible for us to link anyone’s answers back to them – it’s all anonymous.

Your responses will help to provide additional evidence to the importance of Highlands and Islands air transport and inform the Scottish Government’s work on Air Departure Tax. Make sure you Have Your Say and please tell others about this survey!
