Glasgow Airport publishes holidaymakers’ guide to summer


Glasgow Airport has unveiled its comprehensive 2011 Summer Flight Guide which includes details on five new routes and extra flights to a further 13 destinations.


Tens of thousands of copies of the guide will be distributed to travel agents, supermarkets and households throughout the West of Scotland in the coming weeks and months, and in addition to flight information, it provides holidaymakers with a detailed overview of the airport’s extensive facilities, including its new contemporary food hall.


Some of of the highlights of the summer guide include Thomson’s new direct flight to Cape Verde in West Africa, while Thomas Cook has confirmed it will fly to Izmir, Turkey and Kefalonia, Greece. Royal Caribbean has also introduced a flight to Venice and, which only arrived at Glasgow Airport in March 2011, will fly to Nice as well as six other popular sun spots.


A number of the airport’s long standing airline partners such as easyJet, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and US Airways, have added extra capacity on a range of routes, and from September 2011 Icelandair will fly direct from Glasgow to Iceland.


Amanda McMillan, Managing Director of Glasgow Airport, said: “We’re looking forward to what promises to be a busy summer period and the addition of five new routes is fantastic news for the airport as it help strengthens our offering to passengers.


“Our airline partners have responded to an increase in passenger demand by adding extra capacity on 13 popular routes and our new flight guide will provide customers with a full run down on all of our destinations, as well as an overview of our retail offering, car parking facilities and bars and restaurants.”


The new summer guide also includes up-to-date flight information, advice on how to get to the airport, and useful information on where to park, shop and relax. Click to download  your summer guide.
