Glasgow Airport set for busiest weekend of the year
10 October 2013

Glasgow Airport is preparing for its busiest weekend of the year, with over 110,000 passengers due to pass through the airport for the start of the October holidays.

Alongside the normal flow of business travellers, thousands of additional holiday-makers will be flying out from Scotland’s largest airport to popular sunspots including Antalya, Cancun, Dubai, Orlando, Palma and Tenerife.

Many airlines have scheduled additional flights over the weekend and others will be operating flights with larger aircraft than normal.

One of the airlines to increase capacity over the weekend is Thomas Cook Airlines. The airline is doubling the number of staff to help handle additional flights with more aircraft being based at the airport to help with the rush of passengers heading for the sun. Thomas Cook normally have six aircraft based at Glasgow International Airport but with demand for holidays so high the airline has drafted in an additional 20 plans from around the UK to operate an extra 75 flights.

The rush will get underway on Friday when Thomas Cook Airlines, alongside their normal schedule, will operate an additional ten flights to Tenerife and five extra flights to Dalaman, Fuerteventura, Heraklion and Mahon.

The start of the October week is set to surpass the first weekend of the summer holidays, which was the busiest in five years, in terms of passenger numbers. In addition to the extra staff, Glasgow Airport will also have a range of entertainment and activities throughout the Terminal for children to ensure their holiday gets off to a great start, including treasure hunts, arts and crafts and a surfing simulator for the more adventurous.

Francois Bourienne, Glasgow Airport’s commercial director, said: “The October holiday weekend is the busiest of the year for our airlines and for many travellers, their holiday begins the moment they arrive at the airport. This year we expect to welcome more passengers than last year, and we will be creating a tremendous buzz in the terminal so that families can get into the holiday spirit as they pass through the airport.”

Steve Heapy, chief executive of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, added: “This is going to be our busiest October half term weekend yet at Glasgow Airport. More than 7,000 passengers are due to fly with us this year, an increase of 16 per cent on last year. The Spanish hotspots of Alicante, Palma and Tenerife are the most popular destinations for Jet2.com this weekend, so it certainly appears that families are using this school holiday to enjoy some family fun in the sun before the cold winter months really kick in here.”

Glasgow Airport has enjoyed a sustained period of passenger growth stretching back to January 2011 and recently reported its busiest summer in five years with 2.4 million passengers used the airport during the peak summer months of June, July and August.

The consistent growth seen throughout 2013 is expected to continue well into 2014 as a number of airlines including Icelandair, Jet2, Thomson and Virgin Atlantic have all announced plans to increase their flights and capacity from the airport.

The world's biggest helicopters


At the times of Cold war Russians were in the need of a rotorcraft with big load carrying capacity. Military tactics of the 1950s were studied and the conclusion was that a heavy transport and troop-carrying helicopter capable of airlifting combat materiel weighing up to six tonnes (13,228 lb), such as artillery pieces with tractors, heavy trucks and self-propelled guns for the airborne assault troops, was necessary.

At the end of 1952, the Mil OKB - Opytnoe Konstructorskoe Byuro had the first versions of the VM-6 prototype ready. On June 1st 1955, the Government Commission gave the go-ahead for the full-scale mock-up of what will be known as the Mi-6, the biggest chopper at that time. Two years later, the Mi-6 was doing its first run with R. I. Kaprelian as test pilot, thus opening a new chapter in aviation history.

After this many companies have launched largest heli's. Russia is the true leader in producing largest helicopters in the world. Here is the list of Largest Helicopters in the wolrd which are in service now ... Take a look at it here

the longest amount of time I spent traveling by plane was two days. I took Air Canada from YVEs to Brasilia via Toronto Miami and two other cities in Brazil. On the way back the captain lost the radar and we ended up flying around in circles from Sap Paulo. I was bagged when I got back to Canada.

Glasgow Airport records month of growth during September 2013
16 October 2013

Glasgow Airport has reported another month of strong growth after 765,000 passengers travelled through the airport in September, representing an increase of 3.8 per cent compared to the same period last year.

During the month of August, Domestic traffic grew by 5.5 per cent while international traffic grew by 2.6 per cent. Airlines contributing to the consistent growth at Scotland’s largest airport include Emirates, Jet2, Lufthansa, Virgin Atlantic and Wizz Air.

Among the top preforming routes from the airport are easyJet and FlyBe’s daily flights to Paris CDG, which combined carried 12,264 passengers, representing a 14 per cent increase and easyJet and KLM’s daily flights to Amsterdam, which combined carried 36,802 passengers, representing a 13 per cent increase.

As always, long haul flights continued to perform outstandingly well from Scotland’s largest airport with Emirates carrying an incredible 35,620 passengers between Glasgow and Dubai, up 22 per cent, cementing its place as Scotland’s most popular long haul air route, while Air Transat carried
12,344 passengers between Glasgow and Canada on its flights to Calgary, Toronto and Vancouver.

Flights to the United States also performed well with 9,515 passengers travelling with United Airliners between Glasgow and New York, 14 per cent more than in September 2012. US Airways also recorded growth across the Atlantic from Glasgow Airport with a 6 per cent rise to 8,764 passengers flying direct to Philadelphia, while Virgin Atlantic carried 5,593 to Orlando on Scotland’s only Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet service.

These exceptional figures firmly cement Glasgow Airport’s status as Scotland’s airport of choice for long haul, luxury and premium air travel.

Alongside growth on the airports established short and long haul routes, Glasgow Airport’s newest routes also performed well. Lufthansa’s new daily service to Dusseldorf carried 3,436 passengers while Wizz Air carried 5,389 passengers between its two Polish routes to Gdansk and Warsaw.

Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said: “It is very encouraging to be able to follow what was our best summer in five years with further passenger growth in September.

There were a number of events within Glasgow during September, including the Liberal Democrats Autumn Conference, which contributed to a strong demand for domestic services and with the SSE Hydro now open, the city can look forward to attracting even more large scale events.

“We have made a positive start to October and we are currently preparing for what will be our busiest weekend of the year. More than 110,000 people are expected to pass through our doors this weekend for the start of the October school holiday week, which will mark the end of the busy peak season. Our attention will then turn to progressing our £17 million investment plans which will see large parts of the terminal undergo a major makeover ahead of the 2014 Commonwealth Games. It really is an exciting time for Glasgow Airport.”

Glasgow Airport’s continued growth looks set to continue well into 2014 with airlines including Icelandair, Jet2, Thomson and Virgin Atlantic all having announced plans for expansion and for more flights from the airport during 2014.

I was thinking maybe we could have a thread for those of us who use Microsoft Flight Simulator? Somewhere to post questions, advise, screen shots etc. Thoughts?
