Glasgow Airport on countdown to skyhub

Glasgow Airport has started the 100-day countdown to the opening of its new skyhub extension.

Glasgow Airport has started the 100-day countdown to the opening of its new skyhub extension.

The £31 million project is due to open in October and marks the single largest investment in Glasgow Airport for the past 15 years.

Featuring a state-of-the art security screening area and a series of new shops and restaurants, the skyhub extension will open in phases.

On October 21 a domestic arrival hall will open on the ground floor with the new security area due to open on the first floor a few days later.

The security area will include 10 new x-ray machines to make it quicker and easier for passengers to pass through check-points.

Airport managing director Gordon Dewar said: "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."

Improvements at Glasgow Airport have been taking place over the past year, with a new parking system revealed in March.

Drop off and pick up at the airport is now free in the new covered parking zone opposite the main terminal as part of a £2 million to improve accessibility.
