Glasgow Airport has been crowned Airport of the Year for the second consecutive year at the Scottish Transport Awards. 

The award is one of two AGS Airports picked up last night. 

The Airport of the Year title recognises the airport's operational excellence and commitment to improving the passenger experience.

Mark Beveridge, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said: “We are thrilled to have been named Scotland’s Airport of the Year for the second consecutive year.

“Our wider airport community employs thousands of people across more than 100 companies, but we each have the same desire and drive to ensure our passengers enjoy an excellent customer experience.

“We focus on ensuring the passenger is at the heart of everything we do, so it is great to see that the judging panel has once again recognised the remarkable work being done day in, day out by our people.”

The ceremony took place on June 20 with Fiona Hyslop MSP, cabinet secretary for Transport, attending the event hosted by Jo Caufield.

Additionally, the CAELUS (Care & Equity – Healthcare Logistics UAS Scotland) venture, a joint project spearheaded by AGS Airports in collaboration with NHS Scotland, received the Most Innovative Transport Project accolade.

The initiative aims to pioneer the first medical distribution network in the UK using drone technology.

Fiona Smith, group head of Aerodrome Strategy at AGS Airports and CAELUS project director, said: “Our team will be carrying out more live flight trials later this year to showcase how we can revolutionise the way healthcare services are delivered in Scotland and to provide equity of care.

“This award is testament to the hard work carried out by all the partners involved in this consortium and I thank them all as we continue onto the next phase of the project.”

On the same night, Glasgow Airport also picked up the Best Brand Development Award at the Marketing Society Star Awards for the ‘Go For It Campaign’.
