Airport's £30m 'skyhub' plan is cleared for take-off
SCOTLAND'S biggest airport will today announce a £30 million redevelopment programme aimed at streamlining travel and improving services.
Glasgow Airport is to create a single "skyhub" by filling in the space between the current main terminal and the smaller second one. This will create a single departure point for all passengers, with one large security clearing area rather than the three separate zones currently used, and increase the airport's passenger-handling capacity.
The redevelopment will also allow the airport to put more retail outlets airside.
A spokeswoman for BAA, which operates Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen airports, said: "It's about achieving a better service and giving a wider choice of bars and shops."
Work is expected to last about 18 months, and airport chiefs said it was hoped disruption at the airport - which is having to deal with massive roadworks going on in the area - would be minimal.
