ACI Europe has reacted with dismay today to the call by an environmental group for the closure of all small regional airports across Europe unable to achieve profitability within a five-year period.
Glasgow Airport has announced that it is "bitterly disappointed" at Ryanair's decision to cease operations from the Scottish gateway later this year, the airline blaming the decision on the high price of the country's Air Departure Tax (ADT).
The last few days have been big ones for route launches in Europe with a number of airports announcing new services.
Over 603,000 passengers travelled through Glasgow Airport in February, an increase of 7.7% on the corresponding month a year ago.
It might not be the most high-profile opening of 2017, but Brussels South Charleroi Airport is confident that its new Terminal 2 will make a big difference to passengers and its airline customers.
