New daily flights to Inverness

The airline Flybe is to start flights between Inverness and London City airports on 27 October.
The BBC reported the twice daily service forms part of a five-year deal with London City.
Members of the Moray and Highlands tourism industry welcomed the agreement, which also involves a four times daily service between Edinburgh and London. It is seen as a major economic boost to the region.
Flybe also expects the new Inverness and Edinburgh routes to appeal to business travellers.
The new Inverness route has been welcomed by Highlands and Islands Airports Ltd and the Scottish Council for Development and Industry (SCDI).
