Airline on target to filling capacity

The ripples caused by the demise of airlines Zoom and XL earlier in 2008 were felt wide across the travel industry, with Glasgow Airport one of those to bear the brunt of its effects. However, in the months that have passed, the airport has found itself on the verge of filling the gaps left by the two airlines.

Both companies operated a number of flight routes from the airport, so the need to fill up the spaces left was pressing. The airport has since worked tirelessly to plug the holes and continues to look for new business.

Amanda McMillan, managing director at Glasgow Airport, said: "The loss of Zoom and XL Airways, within weeks of each other, was a significant blow for Glasgow Airport, and came at a difficult time for the airline industry. The credit squeeze and falling demand has seen airlines around the world reduce capacity and ground aircraft to save money.

"Despite these challenges, we have worked hard to recover the capacity lost by the demise of Zoom and XL, with impressive results. The gap left by Zoom has now been completely filled, and we are well on our way to backfilling the gap in the market left by XL, with a number of existing carriers already confirming increased programmes in 2009, and discussions on further capacity increases continuing."
