Refurbishment work at Glasgow Airport is expected to be finished ahead of schedule

Work on a £10 million refurbishment of Glasgow Airport is set to be completed ahead of schedule. The improvements in the main terminal building are being carried out at the airport ahead of the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The investment is the latest cash boost for the airport, which has already had £7m set aside to expand the international arrivals area after two years of capital projects worth an estimated £21m. The latest round of the refurbishment centres on an upgraded "passenger experience", with an improved main check-in hall and toilets. The upgrade is likely to benefit people who have annual travel insurance and frequent the airport on a regular basis.

The main works are set to begin in October and a large portion of the funding will be used for the airfield itself, with LED lighting to be installed on airport taxiways. Amanda McMillan, director of Glasgow Airport, explained that with the eyes of the world set to focus on Glasgow next year the airport is keen to play its part in a successful and memorable Commonwealth Games.
