Glasgow Airport unveils new extension

The October opening of Glasgow Airport's terminal extension is the culmination of 18 month's work and £31 million of investment, and is anticipated to improve customer experience at the site.

State of the art facilities, bigger and better shops and improved levels of security are the prime components of the 4,000 square metre extension, which also provides covered walkway access to the adjacent second terminal.

Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said: "This is an exciting day for Glasgow Airport, for the many thousands of staff who work here, and for the hundreds of local people who will benefit from our investment and the resulting jobs boost.

"The opening of our new terminal extension is an important milestone in the ongoing transformation of Glasgow's airport. For passengers, it means a smoother journey through the airport, more space to relax and a wider choice of bars, shops and restaurants.

"This project is part of a planned £200 million, ten-year investment by BAA Glasgow, and is the first of many major developments planned at Glasgow Airport, including the new rail link and a second international pier."

Designed by architects 3D Reid, the new building also features a revolutionary translucent cladding system called Kalwall, whose highly-insulated material absorbs external daylight allowing natural light to flood the terminal, in turn reducing the need for artificial lighting heating.

Travellers flying from Glasgow Airport can take advantage of great value airport car parking with Airparks®. With 3,000 spaces available within easy reach of the airport itself, Airparks provides secured airport car parking at a budget to suit everyone.
