MSP wants action on flights 'rip off'


An MSP has called on the Scottish Parliament to stop families being ‘ripped off’ when taking a holiday from Glasgow Airport. West of Scotland MSP Stewart Maxwell said it can cost £1000 more for a family of four to fly to Orlando from Glasgow than it would from a London airport, the Evening Times reports.

Mr Maxwell said, as the journey is shorter from Glasgow, there should not be a higher fare. He asked Scottish Transport Minister Stewart Stevenson what could be done to stop the practice, adding: ‘I call on travel agents and airlines to stop ripping off people in Scotland and bring the cost of flying from Glasgow down to the same level as it costs to fly from London.’

Mr Stevenson agreed travellers from Scotland were sometimes paying more for their flights and said he had met industry leaders to try and resolve the problem. A spokesman for the ABTA said that over a year fewer passengers fly from Scotland than the south of England so prices have to be higher. He added: ‘If it was simply about making extra profit, another operator would come in and undercut to win passengers.’
