Entrepreneurs to help airport boost business credentials
Three of Scotland's most successful entrepreneurs are to act as business ambassadors for Glasgow Airport in a campaign to position it as Scotland's main business and leisure gateway, the Evening Times reports. Jim McColl, chief executive of Clyde Blowers, John McGlynn, the founder of Airlink Group, and Chris Gorman, chairman of the Entrepreneurial Exchange, will take up the new roles. They are going to provide feedback on their experience as regular business travellers and share examples of high-quality customer service from other airports around the world.
The 'Glasgow Gateway' initiative is a innovation by Amanda McMillan, managing director of the airport, who wants to build on the hub's position as Scotland's transatlantic and long-haul gateway.
She hopes the project will help persuade more business travellers to try Glasgow Airport, and attract new flights aimed at the business market to important destinations across Europe and beyond. Glasgow currently lags behind rival Edinburgh as a business hub, and is viewed by many as more of a holiday airports
A number of incentives are being considered to persuade business passengers to fly via Glasgow Airport, including fast-track car parking and security, and lounge access. Ms McMillan told the newspaper: 'We are delighted three of Scotland's most successful entrepreneurs have agreed to act as business ambassadors for Glasgow Airport. Their ideas and comments will allow us to deliver a better experience for business travellers, and indeed for all our passengers.'
