Main terminal improvement to be complete before the 2014 Commonwealth Games
Glasgow Airport operator BAA is bringing forward a £10 million investment to ensure improvements are completed before the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
The improvement project, to upgrade the main terminal building, is being brought forward a year ahead of schedule.
This latest investment is in addition to a further £7 million allocated to expand the airport's international arrivals area – part of a wider £21 million overall investment in capital projects in the past two years.
Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said: "The eyes of the world will fall on Glasgow during 2014 and we fully recognise the important role we have to play in helping deliver a successful and memorable Commonwealth Games.
"We see ourselves as being the gateway to the games and not only will this significant investment ensure we continue to provide high-quality facilities for passengers, it will help create a lasting legacy for Glasgow Airport and the city."
The main works are scheduled to begin in the autumn.
