Its great when there is growth in customers for a business and staff at Car Hire Glasgow Airport know all about that after the recent summer months.
Passenger numbers increased by almost 5% at Glasgow Airport for August compared to the same time last year, with more than 782,000 people passing through the airport, but domestic passenger traffic was down slightly on last year.
Almost 2.5 million passengers used Glasgow Airport during the peak summer months of June, July and August – an increase of 2.8% on last year.
Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said “August was an extremely busy month for the airport and the city. We started the month by waving off the thousands of athletes who had descended on the city for the Commonwealth Games which were a resounding success. This was quickly followed by events such as the World Pipe Band Championships and the UDO World Street Dance Championships which attracted thousands of visitors to Glasgow. From a route development perspective we continued to strengthen our European network and provide passengers with greater choice with the addition of a number of exciting new destinations including Prague.”
