Glasgow Airport was today named Airport of the Year at the Scottish Transport Awards for the second consecutive year.

Mark Johnston, chief operating officer of Aberdeen International, Glasgow and Southampton airports owner AGS Airports, said the award “couldn’t come at a better time given the challenges Glasgow Airport and the wider industry is currently facing”.

He added: “Thousands of people from dozens of companies work hard each day across our campus to ensure Glasgow Airport continues to deliver its unique brand of customer service for our passengers.

“Like the rest of the country, we’re operating in very difficult circumstances. However, I’m immensely proud of the fact we’ve remained open and operational throughout this pandemic to continue to deliver vital air services for our customers. Being named Scottish Airport of the Year is a welcome boost.”

Glasgow had been shortlisted for the award alongside Aberdeen International and Inverness airports.

The award winners were announced in a video played during the virtual Scottish Transport Awards Summit.
