Glasgow to open the new Skyhub this month

Glasgow Airport officials are expecting to open the airport's new Skyhub terminal from next month.

Glasgow Airport officials are expecting to open the airport’s new Skyhub terminal from next month.

Officials expect the £31 million construction project will take no more than two weeks to complete and expect the new Skyhub to be completed by September 19th.

The new extension is the largest investment in the airport since the 1990s and will be opened on a phased basis once it is completed.

Contractors Balfour Beatty are expected to begin fitting out the new terminal after construction work has been completed, with the new building expected to welcome its first passengers on October 21st.

The arrival hall, which includes shops and restaurants, is expected to open first, followed by the new security area on the floor above, which officials hope will be in use by October 28th.

Glasgow Airport has been under pressure recently to compensate residents in the local area that live under the flight paths of some of its routes.

However, officials recently rejected a proposed £1 per passenger levy that would be paid into a community fund because of fears that it would impact on the airport’s cheap flight services and the wider economy.
