Work on a £1.4million project to increase capacity in Glasgow Airport’s Central Search facility in the main terminal by 20% is now underway.
The overhaul will see a complete reconfiguration of the entrance to the airport’s Central Search area which will increase the number of security lanes from 10 to 12.
Existing self-service boarding pass scanners will be relocated to a pre-search preparation area on the first floor at the top of the escalators with capacity doubled from five to 10. Two wider gates will also be installed to support passengers with restricted mobility as they pass through security. The first phase of the project commenced this month and will be
completed by March 2018.
This is the most significant improvement work undertaken in Glasgow Airport’s centralised search area since it was opened in 2008 as part of a £31-million terminal extension programme.
