History

After a few expansions, more and more large aircraft such as the Boeing 747 arrived. In 1976 the capacity of the airport had to be increased due to the high demand for flights. Easyjet, which still offers one of the most flights today, started the first Glasgow departures in 1985. In 1989 there were new plans for expansions. There had to be a new international concourse with associated baggage hall and immigration area. The final opening took place a few years later in 1992. In 2004 a second terminal was opened with new check-in desks and additional gates. With a few innovations in the years that followed, such as a Glasgow airport departures lounge, the amount of airlines, flights and passengers continued to increase. In the year 2017, it set a record in number of passengers. The airport received 9.9 million passengers that year with the most flights to London.
