Glasgow Airport adds over £1.44bn per annum to the Scottish economy and supports over 30,000 jobs, according to a new report published by economists York Aviation.The report states that the airport will contribute £2.54bn (GVA) to the economy, support more than 43,000 jobs and handle nearly 17 million passengers per year by 2040 if it continues to grow as outlined in the master plan.York Aviation also highlights Glasgow’s pivotal role as a gateway for exports and imports, with the airport managing more than £3.5bn in goods in 2017.However, issues such as motorway congestion have had to be dealt with and the delivery of the planned rail link needs to be resolved for the airport to achieve its growth potential.
