TRAVEL DAY OF ACTION

Glasgow-Airport-exterior-18.12.14

Such is the devastating impact of the pandemic on the industry, in normal circumstances we’d never be able to do something like this on what is a busy airfield.

More importantly, Glasgow Airport alone has lost a third of its workforce across the 100 + companies that make up our campus (6000 people down to 4000).

Aviation is not just about holidays. We’re an island nation that aviation plays an important role in connecting Scotland with the rest of the world – whether for importing or exporting of goods, people doing business, in-bound tourism or reconnecting people with loved ones who live abroad.

Today Glasgow Airport will welcome approximately 3,000 people mostly travelling on domestic routes. During the same day in 2019 it would welcome over 34,000.

Throughout the pandemic our airports have stayed open at a loss of £3m per month to support lifeline services including:

  • flights to the Scottish Islands
  • Air ambulance operations
  • Vital PPE and medical supply deliveries
  • Critical domestic and international connectivity used by key workers and crucial sectors such as oil and gas
  • Military flights
