Scottish airports sprang back into life today as UK airspace restrictions were relaxed. Over the past 6 days Edinburgh hotels have been full up with passengers unable to travel while hotels in Glasgow reported having to turn away many disgruntled travellers. Obviously the hotels closest to Scotland’s major airports saw most footfall but most inner city establishments were grateful for extra business also.

On the flip-side, if disruption to our air travel returns for prolonged periods it could seriously affect Scotland’s tourism this summer. Many of our visitors come from overseas but perhaps in their potential absence, more UK residents will decide to holiday in Bonnie Scotland in 2010..
