The first incoming flight from the Faroe islands was met last night at the Scottish capital’s airport by a water canon “salute” from the airport’s fire service, while passengers were piped off the Airbus A319 aircraft by piper Bill Loughridge, who also works as one of the airport’s duty managers.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony marked the first departing flight.
