Flybe is suspending its Inverness to London service due to lack of demand.

A spokeswoman said the airline was "regrettably" stopping the service from Sunday 22 February due to "lower than anticipated" passenger numbers.

However, the number of flights from Edinburgh to London City will increase to six a day as Flybe said they had "proved popular" with customers.

A spokeswoman said: "Flybe constantly reviews its schedule as part of its disciplined approach to growth."

She added: "As a result, Flybe is regrettably suspending its Inverness to London City service with effect from Sunday February 22 due to lower than anticipated passenger numbers.

"Overall, Flybe expects to fly at least half a million passengers annually on its routes to and from London City Airport.

"These services provide direct links across the UK and Ireland into the heart of London and offer a faster and cheaper alternative to road, rail and ferry travel."
