It has been agreed the Glenforsa Airstrip on Mull will reopen for Easter 2013.
This comes after the Oban, Lorn and The Isles Are Committee meeting earlier this week.
Lead Councillor for Oban, Lorn and the Isles, Louise Glen Lee said, “There has been a review of operations at Glenforsa.
In the short term a new safety management system will be introduced as well as a programme of training for island based staff to assist with airstrip inspections.
There will be a subsequent advert for the post of Glenforsa Attendant.
In order to secure the long term safe and sustainable future of the airstrip, further analysis and consultation will take place in respect of a potential leasing model.”
