S5W-15409: Tavish Scott (Shetland Islands)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 19 March 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what Highlands and Islands Airports Ltd (HIAL) profit has been in each of the last five years.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 4 April 2018

HIAL is loss making and has not made any profit in the last five years. The Scottish Government provides significant subsidy to HIAL to offset the difference between its commercial revenue and the cost of its operations which in 2017-18 totals over £26 million. The aim is for HIAL to break even in any given period taking account of its commercial revenue and subsidy from the Scottish Government.
