Pilots back rail link

03.11.09

Airline pilots at 10 scheduled airlines and four charter airlines flying into Glasgow Airport have thrown their weight behind the campaign to restore the recently axed rail link. The British Airline Pilots' Association (BALPA) has written to all MSPs asking them to sign the motion tabled by Bill Butler calling for the restoration of the project, recently axed by the SNP Government.

In the letter BALPA says that the future of Glasgow Airport depends on its accessibility, and the withdrawal of the rail link will damage this, particularly in 2014 when Glasgow hosts the Commonwealth Games. The impact on the economy of west Scotland also cannot be discounted, with 8.3 percent of jobs in Greater Glasgow in aviation, travel and tourism.

BALPA recalls that then transport minister Stewart Stevenson last year said that the rail link between the city and the airport was 'a nationally significant project vital to the local and wider economy.' The letter adds: 'While Glasgow is the fourth most visited city by tourists coming to the UK its nearest rivals, Liverpool, Birmingham and Cardiff, have direct rail connections to their airports.'
