Airport seeks English passengers
Glasgow Airport has launched a campaign to try to boost the number of passengers travelling from northern England to catch its flights. The initiative will focus on people based around Carlisle in north-west England who are planning to set off on a family holiday this year, pointing out that Glasgow Airport is closer than Manchester Airport - where people from the area regularly go to catch flights.
The campaign points out that Glasgow can offer cheaper flights as a result of the differences between the school holiday periods in Scotland and England. Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said: ‘A family of four could save hundreds of pounds on their summer holiday if they fly from Glasgow during August or September. With cheaper holidays, cheaper parking and a shorter journey time from Carlisle, it makes financial sense to fly from Glasgow.’
Of course the reverse is true for Scottish passengers in the early summer period, when those in the Boarders regularly travel to English airports to get a cheaper flight in the period before the English schools break up. Even adding in the cost of an airport hotel, canny Scot's can save money.
