A new logo for Glasgow Airport has been revealed as part of a multimillion-pound investment.

The re-branding has a distinctive Scottish influence with the use of Saltire colours and features a thistle design along with the message, Proud to Serve Scotland.

The image is already on digital display screens, on the back of staff polo shirts and will be rolled out further during the next few months.

To mark the launch, a mascot version of the logo will be walking around the airport and meeting travellers today.

The airport logo has been unveiled during a £17 million pound revamp of the terminal in advance of the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said: “When creating our new identity, we considered the many factors that make Glasgow Airport unique and the overwhelming theme was that the people who work here see it as more than a job.

“They carry out their day-to-day roles with great care and are passionate about delivering unrivalled customer service to the millions of people who travel through our doors every year. Our new strapline was therefore quite a logical choice as it articulates the tremendous sense of pride we take in serving Scotland.

“Through our continued investment and new logo,we are also sending out a clear message that Glasgow Airport is committed to playing its part in the successful delivery of what will be the biggest sporting event in Scotland’s history, when Glasgow plays host to the 2014 Commonwealth Games.”

Councillor Gordon Matheson, Leader of Glasgow City Council, said: “Glasgow Airport will welcome tens of thousands of visitors from all over the world in the summer of 2014 and I am delighted it has reached such an important milestone in its investment programme with the launch of its new logo, which will give our guests an ever better welcome to the city.”

David Grevemberg, chief executive Glasgow 2014, said: “Glasgow Airport will be a key entry point for those attending the Games from elsewhere in the UK and internationally including athletes and team officials and we welcome the investment being made to help Glasgow’s global gateway to the Games make a positive first impression.”

The logo was designed by the agency Designline based in Paisley in Renfrewshire.
