Budget airline in capital mix-up
An airline has mistakenly placed Inverness closer to where Edinburgh should be on a map sent to Highland homes with promotional material.
Flybe has apologised for the error which appears to place Inverness next to the Firth of Forth, more than 100 miles south of its true location.

The company added passengers could look forward to important news regarding Inverness in the future.

Earlier this month, Flybe announced a £20m increase in full-year profits.

The Exeter-based low-cost said it was a significant turnaround in its operational business.

In August, the airline's chairman Jim French met MPs who expressed worries about the reliability of its service between Inverness Airport and London Gatwick.

Lib Dem MPs Danny Alexander and John Thurso said they received assurances that improvements would be made to flights.

They said they were reacting to complaints from constituents.

Flybe said it was strongly committed to the Highlands and its chairman had found the meeting "extremely useful".
