Scotland’s international airports enjoy excellent year-round air links with most European and Scandinavian countries.
Direct access to Scotland is continuously improving with Lufthansa announcing an extension of its Glasgow Munich service to year round from October and Eurowings now flying from Munich to Edinburgh while Ryanair also extended its network with new routes from Baden, Hamburg and a direct route from Frankfurt International into Scotland, bookable from September 2017. Arrivals directly into the heart of the Highlands have also been further facilitated, with KLM now operating connections to Inverness, twice daily via Amsterdam.
There are also seasonal flights from Sumburgh Airport in Shetland to Bergen in Norway, and from Inverness Airport to Geneva in Switzerland.
The best way to find the most competitive fares for flying to Scotland is to search on comparison sites such as Skyscanner, Expedia, Cheapflights, Globehunters, GoEuro and DiscountMyFlights.
