Glasgow Airport handled 9.9 million passengers in 2017, making it the airport's best ever year and breaking all previous records.
With 120 worldwide destinations from 30 airlines, Glasgow is Scotland's number one long-haul airport, serving more destinations than any other Scottish airport.
ABOUT GLASGOW AIRPORT
Proud to serve Scotland for more than 50 years, Glasgow Airport contributes £200m a year to the Scottish economy, thanks to more than nine million passengers travelling through its doors annually.
Glasgow Airport operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with two terminals and 102,000 air transport movements every year.
As Scotland’s principal long-haul airport and a key player in the nation’s transport infrastructure, Glasgow Airport is expanding at a rapid rate.
Glasgow as a city is experiencing a period of unprecedented growth and evolution.
The largest city in Scotland and the fourth largest in the UK, Glasgow has played host to a series of major international events, including the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
THE MASTER PLAN
Over £200 million has been invested over the last 10 years, helping to make the airport the second busiest in Scotland.
Over the past 12 months alone, the airport has invested more than £25 million into a series of successful projects, including resurfacing the runway, increasing aircraft stand capacity and opening a new consolidated car rental centre. It has also invested £1.4m to increase central security area capacity by 20%.
Passenger numbers are predicted to rise above 16 million in 2040.
Glasgow Airport is owned by AGS Airports Limited, a partnership between Ferrovial and Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA).
With over 27,000 people using Glasgow Airport each day - 50% of whom travel by car - parking is in high demand and on-airport spaces are in short supply.
