Scatsta airport is 17 miles North of Lerwick and serves the Sullom Voe Oil Terminal
The airport is operated by Serco IAL in behalf of BP, Kerr McGee and Bristow helicopters.
Offshore workers fly from Aberdeen to Scatsta in fixed wing aircraft - BAe 146 or ATR 42s/72s or similar and transfer into helicopters for the final leg of their journey to the ofshore oil and gas installations.
Scatsta Airport is to close in the
summer with the loss of up to 50 jobs. The North Mainland airport which serves
the offshore sector will have closed its doors by the end of June. It comes as
Bristow Helicopters faces the loss of its offshore contract from the airport.
The new deal has been awarded to Babcock, which is using Loganair instead of the
current fixed-wing operator Eastern Airways. Flights are due to start operating
from Sumburgh Airport from 1st July.
