Glasgow Airport invests £500,000 in new look executive lounge

Glasgow Airport is embarking on a £500,000 project to transform the look and feel of its dedicated passenger lounge.

Work will start on the airport’s existing SkyLounge facility, which is situated in the main departures lounge, on 26 April with a temporary lounge opening in the interim to accommodate passengers.


Glasgow Airport’s executive lounge caters for over 100,000 passengers per year offering them a quiet and comfortable area to relax before their flight.

The news comes as Glasgow Airport nears the completion of a £3 million project involving the construction of a two storey, 1,400 square metre extension to one of its three piers.  The east pier extension project is a direct response to the airport’s success in securing a number of new routes and services. 

In 2014, the airport undertook one of the most significant and comprehensive upgrades to the main terminal building since it was first opened in 1966. It invested £20 million in refurbishing large parts of the terminal including international arrivals.

John McConnell, head of commercial at Glasgow Airport said: “At Glasgow Airport, we put our passengers at the heart of our operations, and I’m confident our customers will enjoy the look and feel of our new look lounge.

“The new facilities will be particularly beneficial to our regular business customers, who make extensive use of the lounge’s first class facilities. The investment will also see the lounge receive a brand new look and feel, and we’re excited about unveiling it in time for the big summer getaway.”

Over the next three months Glasgow Airport will see the launch of 13 new routes including direct flights to Las Vegas, Munich, Prague and a daily service to Halifax, Nova Scotia.  In April, Wizz Air announced it will introduce new services to the Hungarian capital of Budapest, the Polish city of Lublin and Vilnius, Lithuania later this year.
