Demand for Scotish goods and new routes help cargo levels jump by 31% at Glasgow airport


Exports of some of Scotland's best known food and drink plus a number of new routes has helped cargo volumes at Glasgow Airport increase to a 5 year high. BAA said Glasgow handled 9028 tonnes of cargo in the year to August, a rise of 31% on 2004.

Exports of smoked salmon, grouse and whisky helped drive the huge boost, taking cargo to its highest levels since before 9/11. The success of international carriers such as Emirates, US Airways and Zoom has also fuelled the expansion.

The arrival of Dubai-based airline Emirates has been a key element in the growth of the airport's cargo business. The wide-bodied A330 used by Emirates on its daily service to Dubai can carry up to 15 tonnes of cargo. And from next month, Emirates will operate a Boeing 777-300ER - with a cargo capacity of 17 tonnes - on the route.
