'Buyer found' for Prestwick airport

Scotland on Sunday reports that a buyer for the airport, which serves Glasgow, has been found and that an announcement will be made in the next few weeks.

 

The Scottish government paid £1 for Prestwick, which now has former Loganair chief executive Stewart Adams as its interim boss.

 

Prestwick’s only passenger services are from Ryanair and the airport accounts for only 672,000 passengers, a quarter of its total a decade ago.

 

A spokesperson for the Scottish government told the paper that meetings “with a number of parties” had taken place and added: “It remains the intention of the Scottish government to return Glasgow Prestwick airport to the private sector at the appropriate time."
