Glasgow Airport set for GBP11.2m makeover

Glasgow Airport announced plans for a GBP11.2 million construction project at the airport in 2011 (BBC News, 08-Jan-2011). Glasgow’s owner, BAA, stated GBP5.9 million will be spent on the terminal building, including replacement of the original heating system, and the construction of new restaurants and a bar. BAA will also undertake a four-year, GBP2 million project to improve the main aircraft taxiway to the runway. The airport has suffered from declining passenger numbers in recent years but managing director Amanda McMillan maintained she was confident for the year ahead.
