Please attribute to a BAA spokesperson:

We regret the uncertainty this vote has already caused our passengers and airlines.

We hope that the union will engage with us quickly to conclude an agreement.

Fewer than half of those people eligible to vote have done so and we do not believe this result provides a clear mandate for strike action.


Tesco, the UK’s largest retailer, has chosen Glasgow as the location for its first airport store.

A new Tesco Express store will open in the domestic arrivals area of Glasgow Airport later this year.

The products on sale will reflect the needs of passengers returning from holiday and business travellers who need to stock up before heading home, as well as departing passengers and airport staff.

The store will be open round the clock and will offer a wide range of goods similar to those seen in Tesco Express stores across the country including dairy products, ready meals, breads, sandwiches, snacks and drinks.

Amanda McMillan, Managing Director of Glasgow Airport, said: “This is great news and I’m very proud that Tesco, which is undoubtedly one of the strongest brands around today, have chosen to open their first airport store here at Glasgow Airport.

“Tesco’s presence will totally transform a prominent space in the domestic arrivals area, and improve the overall choice available to our passengers and staff in the terminal.”

Tony McElroy, Tesco Corporate Affairs Manager said: “We are delighted to be making this investment at Glasgow Airport. The new store will bring around twenty new jobs and is a first for Tesco at an airport location.

“Our Express stores stock a wide range of everyday essentials with a focus on fresh foods and convenience shopping.

“Our Glasgow Airport store will have the same great range and prices as the Tesco Express stores you find in Scotland’s High Streets, and it will enable travellers arriving in Glasgow to pick up those essential items before heading home.

“Across Scotland we are investing and creating jobs – this latest Tesco Express store in Glasgow Airport is a great example of our continued commitment to keeping our business fresh and trying new ideas.”


The first Aer Lingus Regional flight from Glasgow Airport to Shannon took to the skies today (Thursday).

The inaugural service linking the west coasts of Scotland and Ireland was announced only four weeks ago.

Aer Arann and Aer Lingus have joined forces to serve another top Irish destination under the Aer Lingus Regional moniker, after launching flights to Dublin and Cork earlier this year.

The service will operate daily from Glasgow Airport, with prices starting at £29.99 one way including taxes – visit to book.

To mark the inaugural flight, all passengers boarding the flight were treated to complimentary drinks and snacks at the departure gate.

Moving Glasgow Airport forward

all text used is from the official Glasgow Airport Page

With effect from Tuesday June 8 we are changing the way passengers and motorists access Glasgow Airport. You will start to see changes in the forecourt area from that date.

We’re investing £2 million to make it easier and safer for passengers to access the airport, with a new purpose built passenger drop-off zone opening close to the main terminal.

The new facility is a short walk from international arrivals and check-in, and will replace the temporary drop-off and pick-up zone in the multi-storey car park, introduced after the 2007 terrorist attack.

A canopy will link the new drop-off zone directly to the main terminal and flight information screens will provide live updates on all departing and arriving flights. Help points will be available for any passenger in need of assistance.

New arrangements are also being introduced for passenger pick-up and special provision has been made for passengers with reduced mobility.

Improved signage and landscaping will make it easier for passengers and motorists to find their way around the airport, and a new entrance will be created for the main multi-storey car park, improving access from the M8.

The investment will improve access and ease congestion at Glasgow Airport, while also providing an attractive facility for our passengers.

At Glasgow Airport, we work hard to ensure our passengers have an easy, enjoyable journey through our airport. With the existing airport nearing capacity, we knew that major work was needed. So we have spent the last year and £31 million transforming our airport with a major new terminal extension. Now we can offer you more space to relax, a wider choice of bars, shops and restuarants, and state-of-the-art security equipment to speed you safely on your way.

This is just the start of our journey though. Over the next ten years, we will invest more than £200 million at Glasgow Airport, building a modern, 21st Century gateway for Scotland.

We’re very proud of what we have achieved so far and we’re looking forward making even more improvements over the next few years.

We hope you enjoy the new Glasgow Airport and wish you a safe, smooth journey through our airport.
