Flights to Orkney Kirkwall

Rugged scenery, ancient history, friendly locals and a temperamental climate make Orkney an interesting destination for a cultural holiday. Relax on the beautiful beaches of Sanday, visit the numerous archaeological sites on Rousay (the Egypt of the North), go puffin spotting on Westray, or relax with a dram of whisky in one of the many bars in Kirkwall. Whatever you’re planning to do in Orkney, with Skyscanner you can find the right flights to make it happen.

Airlines that fly to Orkney

Flybe (operated by Loganair) flies to Kirkwall Airport. Currently this is the only airport served by flights from the mainland UK, and serves as the gateway to the Orkney Islands. Loganair operates onward flights from Kirkwall, and also operates the short flights which hop between the islands. One of these, the journey between Westray and Papa Westray, only takes two minutes and is the shortest scheduled flight in the world.

Getting to your destination

Car hire is available at Kirkwall Airport from W R Tullock. There are a number of private hire taxi firms available to bring you on to your final destination, although pre-booking is advised. Stagecoach offers a bus service across Mainland, the island where Kirkwall is situated. Flights from Kirkwall to Orkney’s other airports can be booked in advance. It’s a good idea to have onward transport pre-booked before arriving on the less populated islands.

Find flights to Orkney

Skyscanner takes the strain out of finding flights to Orkney. Simply enter the dates you’re planning to travel and we’ll scan the top airline and flight booking websites to find you the best deals. If you don’t have any dates in mind yet, our ‘whole month’ and ‘whole year’ search functions make it easy to find the cheapest days to fly.

Once you’ve found the perfect flight, you can either book right away (we send you direct to the flight booking website with no extra charge) or you can set up a price alert. That way you can delay booking, but we’ll get in touch and let you know if the price of your flight changes.
