To ask the Scottish Government what the expected gross monthly income was from parking charges at (a) Kirkwall and (b) Stornoway Airport, and how this compared with the actual figure.
Answered by: Michael Matheson 2 October 2018
At 24 September 2018 the car parking income (net of VAT) at Kirkwall Airport was £16,775. At 26 September 2018 the car parking income (net of VAT) at Stornoway Airport was £15,689. Given the significant seasonal variations in passenger numbers, Highlands and Islands Airports Limited (HIAL) has budgeted for car parking income on an annual basis. HIAL has budgeted for income of £179,800 at Kirkwall in Year 1 and £147,800 at Stornoway Airport.
