Stornoway Airport Stornoway Airport (STY/EGPO)

Stornoway Airport is an airfield outside the town of Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, off the coast of Scotland. The RAF maintained a base at the airport until 1998.

Stornoway Airport is owned by the Highlands and Islands Airports Limited, a company controlled by the Scottish Executive. The airfield was first opened in 1937, and used mainly for military purposes. NATO aircraft used the airport for missions over the North Atlantic and for stop overs to Greenland and the United States.

Nowadays the airfield is mainly used for passenger services, HM Coastguard, and Royal Mail.

Description
Stornoway Airport Stornoway Airport provides a key access point to the Western Isles, with flights from Inverness and Glasgow, and inter-island services to Benbecula and Barra. Located on the east coast of Lewis, a few miles from Stornoway, the airport also serves as a base for the search and rescue helicopter operated by HM Coastguard. Air traffic control at Stornoway provides important support services to aircraft flying to and from North America over Iceland. An increasing element of airport business is support services for oil exploration and development in the North Atlantic. The Ministry of Defence recently announced the closure of the RAF base at Stornoway. Aircraft operations are supported by an Air Traffic Control service while on call services to air ambulance and search and rescue flights are assisted by a Flight Information Service Officer. An Airport Fire Service is provided on the basis of a Rescue and Fire Fighting Service category 4 airport as detailed in Civil Aviation Publication 168.
