Glasgow Airport is set to invest £25 million in airport improvements

Glasgow Airport is to invest £25 million in capital projects designed to provide a better experience for passengers, upgrade essential infrastructure and improve airport access.

Proposed work includes improvements to the airport road system, a terminal pier upgrade, a new food court, a new runway lighting system and upgrades to the airfield taxiway. In addition, skylounge, the airport's main passenger lounge, will be refurbished and improvements made to the internal layout of the main terminal building.

Amanda McMillan, managing director at Glasgow Airport, said: "This investment package is good news for passengers, and good news for the economy of Glasgow and the west of Scotland, particularly at a time of recession. These improvements will deliver a better passenger experience, provide enhanced terminal facilities, and improve the efficiency of our taxiway and runway infrastructure, which are essential for the smooth operation of the airport.

"This is a significant investment in the future of Glasgow Airport, and underlines our commitment to grow the airport and deliver a better customer experience for our passengers."

Councillor Steven Purcell, leader of Glasgow City Council, welcomed news of the investment: "We very much welcome the news of this investment in Glasgow Airport, which will deliver a better experience for all its users. The importance of the airport to the local economy cannot be overestimated. Investment in improving Glasgow Airport is an investment in jobs in Glasgow and the west of Scotland."
