Urgent study on airport future planned


An urgent study into the economic impact of Glasgow Airport is to be carried out, the Herald reports. It says that Glasgow and Renfrewshire Councils are in talks with BAA about compiling a detailed assessment of the risks to the region over the next 30 years if the airport’s status were to continue to decline. The study will also highlight the benefits to the economy should there be growth and investment at the hub.

Existing figures show Glasgow Airport contributes £700m annually to the Scottish economy. It employs 5,000 people directly and 10,000 indirectly. These figures, however, were compiled in 2002 and need updating.

The report will come at a crucial time for Glasgow Airport, which could be sold off by BAA under a Competition Commission ruling. It is closing its secondary terminal - T2 - this week in order to save money over the winter, as passenger numbers continue to plummet.
