Passenger at Glasgow airport in Safe Hands

Passengers flying into and out of Glasgow airport can take some comfort in the knowledge that when it comes to safety, procedures are in place and staff awareness are second to none.

It is the first UK airport to be awarded a five star award following a four day assessment by the British Safety Council covering site inspections, questioning staff responses and a review of the risk management in policy.

Airports by their very nature must ensure the general public can move from the parking and arrival areas through check-in ,security and passport into the departure lounge and then onto the aircraft in an orderly and safe fashion.

The management and staff are to be congratulated for attaining this award and hopefully this will lead to greater recognition from the general public and should lead to increased business.
