Latest phase of Glasgow Airport expansion opens

The latest phase of Glasgow Airport's £31 million expansion has been opened

The latest phase of Glasgow Airport’s £31 million expansion has been opened, with the first passengers passing through the terminal’s new security facility.

The new security zone replaces the airport’s three separate security areas, with international and domestic departures now passing through one facility in a bid to increase passenger turnover and cut waiting times.

The £12 million security area opened at 4am on Tuesday and saw thousands of passengers pass through its doors without a hitch.

Commenting on the extension, Glasgow Airport’s managing director Amanda McMillan said that the new security facility would use the latest x-ray technology to speed-up passengers’ journeys through the airport.

"Over the course of the next few months, we will begin upgrading the existing terminal building to provide additional seating areas, new shops and catering facilities," she said.

The first phase of Glasgow’s Skyhub extension opened last week, with the unveiling of a new arrivals meeting hall on the terminal’s ground floor. The new security zone is located on the first floor.
