BP’s helicopter flights to offshore platforms will return to flying from Sumburgh from next week.

Helicopters have been flying from Aberdeen during the coronavirus pandemic to “remove unnecessary footfall” in Shetland.

A spokesperson for BP confirmed that the helicopters will resume flying from Sumburgh from Monday (13 July).

The decision to bypass Shetland was made in March when the isles had 11 confirmed coronavirus cases.
