Air Transport Movements
In 2014, in a consortium with Macquarie European Infrastructure Fund 4 (MEIF4), we acquired a 50% stake in AGS, the company that owns the Aberdeen, Glasgow and Southampton airports.
Glasgow Airport is one of the seven British airports that belonged to the BAA (British Airport Authority) portfolio, which we acquired in June 2006.
During this time, we have carried out several projects that have contributed to the transformation of the airport’s infrastructure. The most relevant include the construction of a dedicated passenger drop-off and pick-up facility, the modernization and expansion of the terminal, and construction and management of Lomond Lounge.
The airport is the key driver of economic development in western Scotland. We contribute approximately 1.44 billion pounds to the Scottish economy, employ 187 people and generate an additional 5,500 jobs in the area.
Glasgow is the second busiest airport in Scotland after Edinburgh and is the largest for long-haul flights, connecting Scotland with Asia and the North Atlantic.
