If you book a flight from the Highlands using ebookers, you’ll probably go through Inverness Airport. Originally a Royal Air Force base, this airport has gone through several changes of management and now operates as the primary Highlands hub serving the north of Scotland and its outlying islands. The airport is actually located in Dalcross, about eight miles and a fifteen-minute drive north-east of Inverness. Airlines originating from this airport include Flybe, easyJet, and Helvetic Airways. A number of private charter plane companies operate out of this airport as well.
For drop-offs, the short-stay car lot offers free parking for up to twenty minutes. After that, you'll pay $5 for up to an hour, $8 for up to four hours, $13 for twelve hours, and $16 for a full day. The long-stay car lot also charges $16 per full day for up to three days, then $10 per day thereafter. Disabled parking is available near the terminal within both the short-stay and long-stay lots.
The Jet Bus Service operates between Inverness and the Inverness Airport every half-hour, with a single fare costing about $4.50. Taxi service also runs to the airport. From downtown, a one-way taxi fare will cost you about $37 or a little more during higher-fare holidays. There is no train service to Inverness Airport, but you’ll find the Inverness Train Station in Inverness itself.
Taking an early flight booked through ebookers don't mean you have to skip breakfast. You'll find D'Lish Landside Restaurant and Bar and the Airside Cafe and Bar open for breakfast by 6 a.m. You can also book a spot in the Highland Lounge, where you’ll have access to fresh-brewed tea and coffee and a complimentary bar. Except for hotels, there are few morning restaurant options closer than Inverness, where you’ll find Burger King and other fast-food options, as well as numerous small cafes.
