More than 160,000 passengers expected to jet off on holiday this weekend in one of the airport’s busiest periods of the year

 

Glasgow Airport is gearing up for one of its busiest periods of the year today (Thursday, October 11) as tens of thousands of holidaymakers prepare to jet off for the October holiday week.

Over 160,000 people are expected to pass through the airport between today and Monday 15 October with many flying out to popular sunspots in the Canary Islands, southern Spain, Cyprus and Florida and city break destinations such as Frankfurt, Munich, Brussels, Paris, Amsterdam and Dubai.

In anticipation of the busy period ahead, the airport and its airline partners will have extra staff on hand to help guide passengers, particularly those with young children, through check-in and security.

Mark Johnston, Glasgow Airport’s Managing Director, said: “The October school break is easily one of our busiest weeks of the year as thousands of families head off for some much-need sun.

“This weekend in particular will be very busy and we are expecting to welcome an average of more than 30,000 people through our doors each day between today and Monday.

“To ensure our customers enjoy a smooth journey through the airport we will draft in more staff across the terminal over the weekend, while young children can enjoy a host of arts and craft activities hosted by the airport’s ambassadors in our designated Kids’ Zone on Friday and Saturday.

“As always during peak periods at the airport, we advise customers to arrive in plenty of time to get through check-in and security. This year we’ve also introduced a number of pre-security preparation areas to help passengers get ready in advance of entering our central security hall.”

On Tuesday, October 30, airline partner easyJet will launch its new Venice route. The twice-weekly service is expected to be very popular with Glasgow Airport passengers.

– More than 14,000 transatlantic flights since the service was launched in 1998 –

 

Glasgow Airport and United Airlines today (Thursday, October 4) celebrate 20 years of the popular New York/Newark route.

Since the first flight took to the skies to cross the Atlantic back in 1998, at that time under the banner of Continental Airlines, the route has carried more than 2.1 million passengers on over 14,000 flights between Glasgow and New York/Newark – gateway to the Big Apple and over 70 nonstop connections across the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Central America.

 

Operated by a 169-seat Boeing 757-200, the daily summer route will return on Tuesday 30th April 2019, to celebrate its 21st birthday at Glasgow Airport. The route is returning five days earlier than in previous years, offering greater travel choice for 2019.

 

Steven Marshall, Head of Airline Marketing Development at AGS Airports Ltd, parent company of Glasgow Airport, said: “New York is one of Glasgow Airport’s most popular destinations, which is clear when you see that United Airlines has carried a phenomenal 2.1m passengers, not to mention some of Scotland’s most famous produce including whisky and sea food, during the last 20 years.

 

“We look forward to celebrating a further milestone when the route returns in April next year to mark 21 years of connecting Glasgow with New York and beyond.”

 

Commenting on 20 years of serving Glasgow, Bob Schumacher, United Airlines Managing Director U.K. and Ireland, said: “We are proud to serve Glasgow and the people of Scotland for all these years.  Since 1998, our service has allowed our customers from the west of Scotland to take advantage of our extensive route network from our New York/Newark hub to destinations across the Americas.”

 

Flight times for the direct daily Glasgow – New York/Newark service are as follows:

 

Glasgow to Newark – departs 0900 with 1135 arrival time in Newark (local)

Newark to Glasgow – departs 1940 with 0730 arrival in Glasgow

– Lump sum windfall to provide a lasting benefit to one charity or community group –

 

Charities and organisations have been urged to apply for a £25,000 lump sum from Glasgow Airport’s FlightPath Fund to help provide a lasting benefit for their community.

The money will be given to a charity or community group based in one of the local areas, Renfrewshire, Glasgow, East and West Dunbartonshire, which currently fall under Glasgow Airport’s flightpath.

 

In order to be considered for the support, applicants must demonstrate positive outcomes in at least one of the three areas where the FlightPath Fund’s community investment is focused – education, employment and the environment.

This is the second year in a row the £25,000 support grant has been made available through Glasgow Airport’s FlightPath Fund. Last year, the Tannahill Centre in Ferguslie Park, Paisley, was awarded the five-figure sum to transform its popular community café.  

 

The Fund’s chair, former KPMG Scotland head Archie Hunter, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for a charity or community group from one of the areas we operate in to secure what is a significant financial contribution that will help them make a real difference.

“Glasgow Airport’s FlightPath Fund continues to be a force for good in directly supporting a wide and diverse range of organisations across the west of Scotland.

 

“In addition to this lump sum, the Fund has awarded more than £100,000 so far this year to more than 50 local groups and charities doing wonderful work in their communities and often providing vital care and support to some of our most vulnerable citizens.

 

“Once again, I’d urge the many local groups and organisations in the areas we serve, including those which have previously received FlightPath Fund support, to grasp this opportunity and submit an application. The £25,000 on offer really could make huge difference to the people they support.”

 

The FlightPath Fund’s independent committee meets every two months to consider applications and includes elected representation from the local authorities for Renfrewshire, Glasgow, East and West Dunbartonshire.

If you are a charity or community group seeking funding and your project meets the following criteria please submit an application.

 

To be considered a project must:

 

  • Create a significant and sustainable benefit to the community
  • Yield positive outcomes in at least one of the following areas: education, employment and the environment
  • Benefit a significant number of people

 

Applications must:

 

  • Provide clear evidence that the project will fulfil a local need

 

  • Provide clear evidence of the financial viability of the project

 

The closing date for applications is Friday, October 26th. The Glasgow Airport FlightPath Fund’s committee will consider entries at the final meeting of the year on Friday, November 2, and announce details of the beneficiary group in due course.

Renfrewshire North & West MSP Derek Mackay is joining forces with the Scottish Ambulance Service (SAS) and the British Heart Foundation to highlight the importance of ensuring defibrillators located in sports centres, schools, community halls and shops across Renfrewshire are registered with the emergency services.

Mr Mackay visited the Bishopton Community Centre to see their new defibrillator, purchased by fundraising earlier in the year.

A defibrillator is a life-saving machine that gives the heart an electric shock in some cases of cardiac arrest. Cardiac arrest is when the heart stops pumping blood around the body. When someone has a cardiac arrest, defibrillation needs to be prompt. For every minute that passes without defibrillation chances of survival decrease by 10 per cent. Research shows that applying a controlled shock within five minutes of collapse provides the best possible chances of survival

It is vitally important that they are registered with the Scottish Ambulance Service in order that during a cardiac arrest emergency call they can signpost the 999 caller to the nearest defibrillator.

At present, not including those located at Glasgow Airport, there are approximately 19 registered public accessible defibrillators with Renfrewshire. However, it is estimated that there is at least the same amount again which are not registered.

As well as calling on any group who has a defibrillator to ensure they are registered, Mr Mackay has also written to Renfrewshire Council and Renfrewshire Leisure to ask them to ensure any machines located in local schools or publicly-run leisure centres are registered.

Mr Mackay said:

“During a cardiac arrest every second counts and having a publicly accessible defibrillator located in our communities, particularly in rural areas, can save lives.

“While it is fantastic that so many Renfrewshire schools, community groups and shops have defibrillators, it is vitally important that they are registered in order that during a cardiac arrest the emergency services can signpost the 999 caller to the nearest machine. To put it simply – if they don’t know you have a defibrillator, they can’t make use of it in an emergency.

“If your business or community group has a defibrillator, check with the Scottish Ambulance Service that it is registered. It could make all the difference.”

David McColgan, Senior Policy and Public Affairs Manager, BHF Scotland says:

“The announcement of the new National Defibrillator Network is an exciting development in improving out of hospital cardiac arrest survival rates in Scotland and the rest of the UK.

“We know that defibrillators play a crucial step in the chain of survival and when used alongside bystander CPR a person’s chance of survival increases greatly.

“Mapping these lifesaving machines will enable Ambulance call handlers to direct bystanders to the nearest device when appropriate. If someone is a guardian of or knows of a public access defibrillator in their area it can be registered through the Scottish Ambulance Service website and you can help play a part in this lifesaving project.”

Pauline Howie, Chief Executive of the Scottish Ambulance Service, said:

“Having a defibrillator close to hand can mean the difference between life and death. The best way to ensure it can save a life is to ensure it is registered with us – that way our 999 call handlers can easily locate it and direct a caller to it in an emergency.

“Instructions on registering a device with us are provided on most defibrillators; however, it couldn’t be easier to register one in retrospect – simply go to the Scottish Ambulance PAD registration site online and provide details of the defibrillator’s location.”

A new bridge over the Black Cart will connect cyclists and pedestrians to a major investment area being developed in Renfrewshire.

Councillors on the Communities, Housing and Planning board have given the green light to construction of the purpose-built pedestrian bridge and cycleway at the south end of Greenock Road.

It will provide a safe route for cyclists and pedestrians to cross the busy junction with Inchinnan Road and enable access to a new development site which has already secured significant investment.

The crossing forms part of the £39.1million Glasgow Airport Investment Area project, funded through the Glasgow City Region City Deal. Planning consent has already been granted for the realignment of Abbotsinch Road and a new link bridge being built over the White Cart.

These infrastructure improvements underpin a 150-acre development site next to Glasgow Airport and enhance connections to the nearby Westway, Inchinnan and Airport business parks.

Two national innovation centres have already been confirmed at the new site, the £65million National Manufacturing Institute for Scotland and the £56million Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre, which will be at the heart of an emerging manufacturing district.

It is anticipated the district will create thousands of new permanent jobs and 365 jobs are required during the construction of the City Deal-funded roads, bridges and cycle routes, which is expected to be completed by 2020.

Renfrewshire Council Leader Iain Nicolson said: “Renfrewshire is open for business and this investment in the roads, bridges and active travel around Glasgow Airport will further enhance our potential to attract public and private sector investment.

“For many years now Renfrewshire has played a vital role in Scotland’s manufacturing sector and this is set to grow exponentially as these national innovation centres attract others to base themselves at this fantastic new facility, connected by air, sea and land.

“Not only will this project enable the continued growth and expansion of the airport and surrounding businesses, but it will also help to make Renfrewshire a more attractive, vibrant and sustainable place to live and work. Communities and businesses will be better connected, resulting in more employment opportunities for residents in Renfrewshire and the wider City Region.”

Public feedback signalled strong support for the Glasgow Airport Investment Area, with 94 per cent backing the plans during extensive engagement over the last two years.

It is one of three projects in Renfrewshire funded through the £1.13billion Glasgow City Region City Deal, an agreement between the UK Government, Scottish Government and eight local authorities across the Glasgow City Region to deliver improved infrastructure, create new jobs, tackle unemployment and drive innovation and growth.

  • Airline adds extra daily flight to Southampton
  • Up to five flights a day to cruise capital of UK
  • Total of seven winter routes with choice of up to 137 flights a week

14th August 2018: Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has boosted the frequency to its 2018-19 Winter schedule on one of its most popular routes from Glasgow with the addition of a second daily flight to Southampton, recognised as the UK’s cruise capital. Seats are on sale for booking from today (Tuesday 14th August 2018) at www.flybe.com,  effective for travel from 28thOctober 2018 through to 30th March 2019.

In addition, Flybe has increased flights to both Southampton and Exeter over the busy October and February half terms and peak festive season.

Roy Kinnear, Flybe’s Chief Commercial Officer comments: “We are pleased to add some additional flights to offer our Glasgow customers this winter. The added frequency will better serve those wishing to make convenient day returns as well as for those wishing to take advantage of quick and easy travel to board the many cruises that depart from Southampton in the winter.”

 

Paul White, Head of Aviation at Glasgow Airport, said: “Southampton is an extremely busy route for the airport so the introduction of an additional rotation is fantastic news. An additional flight on this daily service provides even more choice for our business and leisure passengers’

In total, Flybe’s 2019 Winter schedule from Glasgow features seven routes with a choice of up to 137 flights a week.

Glasgow Airport, as most other airports in UK, saw a massive increase of the passengers passing through. We’re looking at record numbers here. 29 June was the busiest-ever June day, with 38,000 passengers going through the airport.

What does this mean for parents traveling with children? We’re looking at a very busy environment that may trigger anxiety for your kid. Maybe your kid doesn’t suffer from social anxiety and you’re not worried, but you should know that extreme crowds can be overwhelming nevertheless. It’s important for you to stay calm and make your kid feel as secure as possible.

Fortunately, Glasgow airport provides an adequate environment for that. Instead of going unprepared and wondering what to do while you’re waiting, you can simply go through this guide and save yourself and your kid from loads of stress.

 

  • Keep the Babycare Facilities to Mind

 

If you need to change your baby and you’d like some privacy during the process, you can get it at Glasgow Airport. You’ll find several baby-changing areas, and all of them are clearly indicated at the airport’s website.

No matter where you are at the moment, you can easily locate such a facility nearby, without the need to change floors or walk too far.

 

  • If You Have More Time, Benefit from the Play Area

 

You’ll find puzzle tables on different locations at the airport, so you can easily entertain your kid while waiting. If you want real entertainment, however, it’s smart to go to the children’s play area. The Kids Zone, located right after gate 27 on the west pier, is a soft play area that’s free of charge.

When you allow your kid to have fun while waiting, they won’t perceive the flight as something scary. Plus, play will get them a bit tired, so they will be ready for a nap as soon as they get on the plane.

 

  • Feel Free to Eat at a Restaurant

 

Glasgow Airport gives you plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from. Most of them will offer high chairs for your kids, as well as kid-friendly menus. If you need to heat your own baby food or milk, just ask for hot water from the catering outlets and they will provide it for you.

From personal experience, it’s extremely important to get some comfort while eating at an airport. I was transiting through Glasgow Airport and I had three hours to spend there, so a restaurant was definitely on the menu. I picked a random one, asked for a high chair, fed the kid, and did my thing writing for a book reviews service while she was taking a nap.

We managed to get a lot out of those three hours, and the comfortable setting made that possible. I recommend planning this part of your trip way ahead. Glasgow Airport gives you a clear list of restaurants and bars at its website, so it’s easy to make a choice beforehand.

 

  • Bring a Small, Easily Portable Stroller

 

The umbrella-style, fully collapsible stroller is the perfect choice for traveling with your kid. But it’s quite difficult to fold it on your own if you’re traveling alone and you have to hold the baby while doing that. So make sure to get a really light stroller that you can fold and unfold with one hand.

You’re allowed to take a small foldable stroller with you on the plane, but make sure to inform yourself about the dimensions. Different airlines have different rules. Keep in mind that if it goes over dimensions, the foldable stroller will replace the child’s hand baggage allowance.

As for the car seat, it depends on the carrier. Most flights that leave the UK allow adults to hold children in their lap, if they are up to two years of age. But this is not the safest option, given the fact that turbulence can come out of the blue. It’s important to check the guidelines by the airline and see if you can reserve a seat with a carrycot position.

 

Traveling with children is never easy. You worry about their safety and comfort, and you constantly get mean looks from the other passengers. Glasgow Airport makes the experience as convenient as possible for you. It’s important to know your options and organize your transit before you get there.
