Air Discount Scheme
The Air Discount Scheme aims to tackle the problem of high airfares for the remotest communities in the Highlands and Islands by providing a discount of 50% on the core airfare on eligible routes.
Residents of Orkney, Shetland, the Western Isles, Caithness, Northwest Sutherland, Islay, Jura and Colonsay can apply for membership.
The scheme also includes students from these areas studying away from home.
At Scapa Travel, we are one of the few authorised travel agents who can arrange ADS flights for you and provide application guidance.
Application forms are available from our office at 11 Bridge Street, Kirkwall or can be downloaded from the ADS website.
The discount is applicable for travel between airports within the qualifying areas and also for travel from these areas to Inverness, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow. For tickets to destinations outwith these areas, the discount will not be applied to connecting flights.
