Second phase of Skyhub opens
A new security search area at Glasgow Airport has been opened, the latest phase of a £31m expansion. Passengers have begun passing through the terminal's new security zone, which replaces three separate security check areas at the hub.
International and domestic departures have been combined in an effort to increase capacity and reduce passengers' waiting times. This will also reduce staffing and costs for the airport. New shops, bars and restaurants are planned for the former security areas, creating 250 jobs by June next year.
Glasgow Airport managing director Amanda McMillan said: ‘Security is our number one priority and we have invested heavily to build one of the largest security search areas in the UK, using the latest technology to speed passengers safely through the airport.'
‘Over the next few months, we will begin upgrading the existing terminal building to provide additional seating, new shops and catering facilities. For passengers, it means a smoother journey through the airport, more space to relax and a wider choice of bars, shops and restaurants.’
