Motion text

That this House congratulates Glasgow Airport, one of Europe's fastest growing airports, on its busiest May in seven years, after seeing 785,063 passengers travel through the airport last month; notes that this increase of 13.3 per cent in passenger travel has secured Glasgow Airport's 27th consecutive month of growth; further notes that the airport's success in May follows their busiest April on record; recognises the hard work of all of the staff at Glasgow Airport in securing this unprecedented growth; and supports the Scottish Government's commitment to cut Air Passenger Duty by 50 per cent, a reduction that will create nearly 4,000 jobs, add £1 billion to the Scottish economy by 2020 and support Scotland's airports to go from strength to strength.
