Glasgow Prestwick Airport

Glasgow Prestwick Airport

In physical terms, Prestwick is Scotland's largest commercial airfield, although in passenger traffic terms it sits in fourth place after Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International, and Aberdeen Airport all of which are operated by BAA. Passenger traffic peaked in 2007 following ten years of rapid growth, driven in part by the boom in no-frills airlines, especially from Ryanair who is Prestwick's biggest tenant and uses the airport as a hub. Since 2007 there has been a significant reduction in passenger traffic with 1.3 million passengers passing through the airport in 2011, a 22% annual reduction
