Information pertaining to landing of an Israeli air force plane: FOI Release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002

Information requested

Please provide all internal and external correspondence sent and received by the Scottish government relating to the landing of an Israeli air force plane last November and the subsequent decision by Glasgow Prestwick not to accept any further landings from the Israeli air force.


The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) gives everyone the right to ask Scottish public authorities for the information they hold, subject to various provisions and exemptions. It's important to note that the right applies to information, not to documents. Where there are duplicate documents included within correspondence, we may have only provided one copy of that document.

I enclose a copy of some of the information you requested. While our aim is to provide information wherever possible; on this occasion, after reviewing the information on a line-by line basis, we are unable to provide some of the information requested. This is due to statutory exemptions applying under FOISA. Details on what exemptions apply and why can be found in Annex A.
