Media Release: Barra Airport shortlisted for most stunning global airport approach accolade

BARRA Airport is delighted to announce its shortlisting as one of the world’s most stunning airport approaches by private jet booking network,

The panel, which was looking for airport locations that offer passengers a truly inspirational view on approach, have also chosen to shortlist airports from all over the world including Gibraltar, Las Vegas, St Barts, London City, Hong Kong and Queenstown.

The race is now on to whittle down the short-listed nominees down to a top ten.

Michael Galbraith, station manager at Barra Airport, comments: “Barra is famed for its spectacular scenery and its unique beach landing strip, giving passengers a spectacular view of our beautiful island.

“Our beach surface actually gives passengers a much softer landing experience in comparison to tarmac which some visitors are pleasantly surprised by.

“When competing against the world’s airports, we are really happy to have made it through to this point in the competition.

“We may be a small airport, but we have a lot to offer and hope that visitors and locals to Barra will vote to push us into the top ten!”
