plans for a 5 star glasgow airport hotel to be approved today


Plans for a new 5 star hotel at Glasgow Airport are expected to be given the go-ahead today at a meeting of the local council planning committee today, according to a report in the Scotsman newspaper. The approval will come some 3 years after the idea of a new 5 star hotel at the airport was first suggested.

Once the multi-million-pound airport hotel is built, travellers arriving at glasgow airport will be able to walk straight into the hotel via a pedestrian footbridge connecting the 2 buildings, similar to hotels at Manchester, Stansted and Gatwick airports.

The idea of a new hotel at Glasgow airport was first suggested in 2001. With annual passenger numbers now topping 8 million at Scotland’s busiest airport, plus the recent opening of a second terminal, officials think that the time is right to progress the project.

Glasgow airport executives have earmarked an area opposite the main terminal building, between an existing multi-storey airport car park and the airport’s main administrative centre in St Andrew’s Drive, for the new hotel. Plans for the 7 storey airport hotel include 160 bedrooms, 2 restaurants, conference facilities and a leisure centre including an indoor swimming pool and 78 private parking spaces - which is unusual - many hotels this close to the airport force customers to use airport parking.

A spokesman for BAA Scotland, who own and operate glasgow airport, said: 'We are looking for prospective tenants, but we don’t have anyone lined up. Having outline planning permission in place will lay the groundwork for the project.' Councillors will study the proposals at a meeting of Renfrewshire Council’s planning committee this afternoon, and are expected to rubber stamp them.
