Glasgow airport regeneration unveiled later this month

Glasgow airport regeneration unveiled later this month

Glasgow Airport is set to benefit from a new regeneration of its passenger facilities, which will be accessible to the public from October 28th.

The airport’s owner BAA has invested £31 million on the new airport extension, which has included a £12 million investment in security.

Passengers arriving on cheap flights to Glasgow will pass through the new security search area.

The new technology installed means that passengers will no longer be required to remove laptops from hand luggage.

A new search area for information on departing flights will also be unveiled when the newly-expanded area is open to the public later this month, which should make it easier for passengers to find details about different routes.

Passengers will also benefit from a wider range of shops and cafes, with more set to be introduced next year.

This is the biggest single investment in Glasgow Airport since 1990s.

Airport managing director Amanda McMillan said: "It marks a step change in our approach to customer service and security, and will truly transform the experience for passengers."
