|Inverness Airport - on a roll!|
Dundee, Islay, Barra, Benbecula and Tiree also had increased passenger figures, other sites including Sumburgh, Kirkwall, Campbeltown, Wick, John O'Groats and Stornoway were slightly down
Inglis Lyon, managing director of Hial,said: "This growth illustrates the enormous importance of our regional airports to Scotland's economy."
"We will continue to invest in our airports, with major developments planned or underway at Inverness and Sumburgh this year, and continued efforts to improve our customer service and attract more business across the group.
"Notwithstanding the welcome arrival of British Airways and KLM at Inverness we have more work to do to attract new business and improve our financial outlook."
