Cheap flights from Glasgow popular among English travellers

Thousands of English holidaymakers have used Glasgow Airport to take advantage of the airport's cheap flights.

Thousands of English holidaymakers have used Glasgow Airport to take advantage of the airport’s cheap flights.

This is thanks to a promotional campaign by airport bosses, which has attracted passengers from as far south as Cumbria, Manchester and Newcastle.

Because Scottish children went back to school earlier than their English counterparts, holidaymakers from south of the border have been able to take advantage of cheaper deals from the Scottish airport.

Paul White, Glasgow Airport’s airline relations manager, said that ten percent more English people were using the airport to embark on their holiday.

"Over the past few weeks, we have seen a marked increase in the number of English holidaymakers, with some travelling as far as Nottingham and even Surrey to take advantage of the fantastic deals on offer from Glasgow," he commented.

The airport has also said it wants to target English holidaymakers during the next half-term break in October.

Glasgow was the eighth busiest airport in the UK last year, figures have revealed.
