Commonwealth Games stimulates Glasgow

Glasgow Airport, owned by Heathrow Airport Holdings Ltd, has announced details of a multi-million pound investment programme which will see it undergo a major makeover in preparation for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Over £10m of investment has been brought forward and will be spent during 2013 on refurbishing and enhancing key parts of the main terminal building, including international arrivals which for many will be the gateway to the Games.  The airport will also undertake a rebranding exercise and unveil a new logo later this year.

The airport has spent in excess of £21m over the course of the past two years on capital projects designed to provide a better experience for passengers.  However, this latest investment will ensure the airport is ready to play its part in what will be the largest sporting and cultural event Scotland will have ever hosted.

A significant proportion of the investment will also be targeted on the airfield including the installation of state-of-the-art energy efficient LED lighting for the taxiways.

Amanda McMillan, Managing Director of Glasgow Airport, said: “The eyes of the world will fall on Glasgow during 2014 and we fully recognise the important role we have to play in helping deliver a successful and memorable Commonwealth Games. www.glasgowairport.com
