Glasgow begins skyhub countdown

Glasgow begins skyhub countdownThe beginning of this week saw Glasgow Airport begin the countdown to the launch of its terminal extension, known as skyhub.

Airport managers confirmed on July 14th that the £31 million development is on schedule to open in less than 100 days and is set to offer a better experience to passengers.

The two-storey development, which represents the biggest single investment at Glasgow for 15 years, will include a ground floor domestic arrivals hall set to open on October 21st and a new security search area due to open a few days later.

This new security zone will feature ten X-ray machines that are expected to enable quicker and more efficient screening of passengers.

Once through security, travellers will be able to visit shops, bars and restaurants bearing names such as Hugo Boss, Starbucks and JD Wetherspoon.

Airport managing director Gordon Dewar said: "The opening of skyhub, now just 100 days away, promises a better airport experience for passengers at Glasgow Airport, with fast, efficient security screening, more space to relax and a wider choice of bars, restaurants and shops.

"At a cost of £31 million, skyhub is a significant investment by BAA Glasgow in customer service and security, and signals our commitment to put passengers first at Glasgow Airport."

A skyhub opening day will be held in September, offering a preview of the development ahead of its official launch in October.
