SNP MSP Derek Mackay has welcomed the recently reported passenger growth at Glasgow Airport, which is in his constituency of Renfrewshire North & West.
The Airport recorded its busiest April on record as the Airport record its 50th consecutive month of growth.
Over 786,000 passengers travelled through its doors during the month of April, representing an increase of 8.9% on the same period last year.
Mr Mackay, the MSP for Glasgow Airport, said:
“It is encouraging to see passenger growing at Glasgow Airport yet again in what has been a very successful couple of years for the Airport.
“In a time of economic pressures, maintaining passenger numbers can be a challenge and this new increase in numbers is testament to the hard work of all the airport staff.
“Glasgow Airport is going from strength to strength which is good news for the whole of Renfrewshire.
“The Airport is a vital part of the local economy and any increase in passenger numbers has a positive knock on effect throughout the area.”
