Fly UK Announces the Highland Connection Division

Fly UK is pleased to announce the introduction of the Highland Connection division; connecting The Highlands & Islands to the rest of the UK!

Highland Connection which is based in Edinburgh will allow members even more choice when selecting flights, particularly those of shorter durations. Fly UK has opted for the tried and tested Beechcraft 1900D regional turboprop powered aircraft. These aircraft are capable of operating from short strips which make them ideal for this type of operation. Although production of these aircraft ended in 2002, they are still in widespread use today. Fly UK has acquired four B1900D’s from the European Market, all of which now sport our new Highland Connection livery.

Highland Connection aims to connect all parts of the UK to The Highlands and so in conjunction with the existing Fly UK mainstream operations to and from Edinburgh; Highland Connection will offer services to Bristol, Manchester and Norwich.

Fly UK Members can now fly to the following destinations from the main base of Edinburgh:

Aberdeen, Benbecula, Bristol, Campbletown, Inverness, Islay, Isle Of Man (Ronaldsway), Kirkwall, Manchester, Norwich, Stornoway, Sumburgh, Tiree and Wick
