Tugs heading home
THE TWO new tugs for the port of Sullom Voe will finally start their journey from the Spanish Union Naval shipyard, in Valencia to their home port to Shetland this weekend.
The Bonxie and Solan, which have cost the council £14 million, are expected to arrive in the isles in two weeks, with an official naming ceremony to be organised some time in March.
Both vessels have been delayed for up to nine months due to a number of technical problems which had to be ironed out before delivery could take place.
LOGANAIR passengers are being advised of a new telephone number for customers seeking assistance with flights to and from Sumburgh airport.
The airline said that passengers seeking reservation changes, Air Discount Scheme assistance and general travel guidance on Flybe and Loganair services should now call 0844 800 2855.
The number is managed by Loganair’s customer service team in Wick, who have full access to Loganair’s reservations and operational systems and can assist customers with all queries, a spokesman said.
Live flight information on each day’s arrivals and departures can also be found on-line via Loganair’s website at www.loganair.co.uk or Ceefax page 456.
