Extra safety measures have been introduced at Inverness Airport to reduce the risk of coronavirus for passengers and staff.

A system that uses ultraviolet light has been installed to disinfect baggage trays every time they pass along the conveyor belt.

Richard Thompson is a director at Smiths Detection, the company which came up with the system.

He said: "Regaining the confidence of travellers and staff will be crucial for the future of air travel.

"Deploying a technology that is proven to be both efficient in killing micro organisms and safe to use is a testament to Highland and Islands Airport Limited’s commitment to providing healthy passenger journeys."

The airport's general manager Graeme Bell said: "The new disinfectant kits are a valuable addition to the safety measures we have introduced to ensure passengers can travel as safely as possible during the pandemic.

"Our staff have worked hard to implement these measures and are on hand to help anyone who requires assistance during their time in the airport."
