Glasgow airport skyhub countdown

£31 million extension opening October
Airport shopping

BAA Glasgow's two storey development is on course to open in less than 100 days, complete with state of the art security screening and an extended range of bars, shops and restaurants.

The ground floor domestic arrivals hall is due to open on October 21, with the new security search area on the first floor opening a few days later.

Airport managing director Gordon Dewar commented:

"The opening of skyhub, now just 100 days away, promises a better airport experience for passengers at Glasgow Airport, with fast, efficient security screening, more space to relax and a wider choice of bars, restaurants and shops.

"At a cost of £31 million, skyhub is a significant investment by BAA Glasgow in customer service and security, and signals our commitment to put passengers first at Glasgow Airport."

Glasgow Airport Holiday Inn

Ten x-ray machines will be housed in the security search area in order to screen departing passengers quickly and efficiently. They should then have more time to enjoy the new shopping and eating options in the airport. Starbucks, Sunglass Hut, Hugo Boss and J D Wetherspoon are some of the big names who have committed to the project so far.

For comfort and convenience before your flight, why not book a night at the Glasgow Holiday Inn? This four star airport hotel has excellent facilities and is located opposite the terminal building.
