Papa Stour was taken out of the PSO at the last round - it only had two flights on a Tuesday and those rarely had passengers booked. I seem to recall hearing that the island's ferry service was being increased slightly to compensate and its removal also made way for some improvements in the other service timetables to Foula and Fair Isle. The Saturday Sumburgh-Fair Isle has also fallen by the wayside. Island volunteer staffing of the RFFS has been an ongoing issue - it was difficult enough in Foula where the air service really is a lifeline but that seems to be much better now than over the last couple of years.
