Glasgow International Airport has around 30 carriers who provide access to 90 destinations. Passenger numbers continue to grow with almost 735,000 people travelling through the airport in June 2012, representing an increase of 4.5% compared to the same period last year. Airline and travel partners include easyJet, Jet2.com, Barrhead Travel, Icelandair and Emirates.
In January 2012, Glasgow Airport announced details of an investment programme which will see £9 million spent on capital projects during this year. These include improvements to the airfield itself and more work on the terminal building, in addition to a multi-million pound refurbishment in 2011. Glasgow Airport is very active in its community funding, and the Glasgow Airport FlightPath fund distributed over £170,000 to 60 organisations in 2011.
Glasgow Airport was officially crowned Scottish Airport of Year at the 2012 Scottish Transport Awards.
