Glasgow Airport Guide

Passengers down 9.6 percent


Glasgow Airport passengers fell by 9.6 percent last month, after it was hit by the BA strike, weather disruption and the ongoing fallout of the collapse of Scottish price range airline Flyglobespan. It handled just 473,900 passengers - 50,500 less than in March 2009.

An airport spokesperson said the two strikes by BA cabin crew - totalling 7 days of disruption - resulted in 20,000 fewer passengers Scotland-wide. He added: ‘The loss of Flyglobespan, which carried nearly 40,000 passengers in March 2009, was another major reason for the poor month-to-month performance.’

Rival airport Edinburgh, where passenger numbers are consistently higher than Glasgow’s, suffered a drop of 3.3 percent to 671,500 passengers - 197,600 more than Glasgow. In the 12 months to the end of March Edinburgh had just over 9m passengers, whereas Glasgow had 7m.
