Scottish travel industry plans 'colourful and noisy' protest outside Holyrood

Members of the agency, operator and airline sectors in Scotland will protest on 5 November outside the Scottish Parliament.

At least 150 agents will join aviation and tour operator representatives in a 'colourful, noisy, peaceful show of strength to protest outside the Scottish Parliament about the lack of assistance for the travel industry in Scotland, which supports 26,000 jobs'.

The Scottish Passenger Agents' Association said: "The protestors will be demanding a comprehensive and robust airport testing system to be put in place urgently and an end to quarantine for travellers as well as targeted support for the beleaguered travel sector.

"They will be highlighting the fact that Scotland needs its connectivity for the whole economy and not just for holidaymakers."

    Anyone recall the SNP promise to lower Air Passeger Duty? I do. To gain majority support from the Greens the promise was abandoned. Prestwick airport? A prime asset owned by the Scottish Administration but unprompted.
