Glasgow Airport is gearing up for one of its busiest periods of the year as tens of thousands of holidaymakers prepare to take to the skies for their summer holidays.

More than 140,000 people are expected to pass through the airport over the coming weekend with many jetting off to popular sunspots such as Dubai, Florida, the Canary Islands, Turkey and Greece.

Glasgow Airport will have extra staff in place to offer assistance and help guide passengers through check-in and security. There will also be a range of entertainment and activities for children to ensure their holiday gets off to a great start, including a dedicated “kidzone”. This will include a bouncy castle, face painting, a sand sculptor and treasure hunts.

Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said: “There is always a real sense of excitement throughout the airport at this time of year with many people heading off for their annual summer holiday. We are anticipating more passengers than the same period last year and a number of our airline partners have responded to an increase in demand by adding extra capacity on some of their most popular routes.

“It’s important to us that everyone’s journey through the airport is an enjoyable one and the entertainment, along with additional staff, will hopefully ensure our passengers’ holidays get off to the best possible start.”
